CROATIA said today it was carrying out bird flu tests on eight wild swans found dead in the past three days.

Zagreb earlier banned poultry imports from neighbouring Slovenia, Bulgaria, Greece and Italy, after bird flu was found in those countries.
"Eight swans have been taken to the Croatian Veterinary Institute for tests to see if they are carrying the bird flu virus," Mladen Pavic, ministry of agriculture spokesman, said.

He said the results of the tests would be announced shortly.

Six of the dead swans were found in a village around 40km from the capital Zagreb, one was discovered on a lake in Zagreb and the eighth in another location around 40km from the city.

The European Commission announced on Sunday that a dead swan had been found in Slovenia with H5-type bird flu.
 Further tests were under way to determine whether it was the H5N1 strain of the virus, which is fatal for humans.
H5N1 was confirmed in wild swans in Greece, Italy and Bulgaria at the weekend.

The H5N1 virus, which has claimed at least 90, mostly Asian, lives since 2003, was detected in two northeastern Croatian villages in October 2005 but the authorities said they had halted its spread with strict quarantine and culling measures.
