Vietnam: H5N1 in 9 provinces

Here in its entirety is a story from Vietnam's Thanh Nien Daily:

Vietnam's animal health agency said Friday that bird flu had spread to 30 communes in nine provinces and cities where nearly 30,000 fowls died or were culled.

The provinces are Bac Lieu and Dong Thap in the south, Thanh Hoa in the center, Bac Giang, Quang Nam, Hai Duong, Hung Yen, and Ninh Binh in the north, besides the capital Hanoi.

Two hundred fighting cocks belonging to a family in Quang Nam died Thursday of suspected bird flu.

The province's Department of Animal Health culled 1,500 chickens later the same day.

fighting cocks? In one family?
