Egypt finds deadly bird flu virus
Egypt has detected its first cases of the deadly H5N1 bird flu strain in three areas in the country, including the capital, Cairo.

The government confirmed that the virus was found in four chickens in Cairo, two in nearby Giza and one in Minya, 220km (135 miles) south of the capital.

Le gouvernement confirme que le virus a été trouvé dans 4 poulets au Caire, 2 près de Giza, et 1 à Minya 220 Km au sud.

The health ministry said tests were carried out on people living nearby, but no human cases had been detected.


Pas de cas humain détecté
Ministers have held an emergency meeting to discuss the situation.

"The central operations room for following bird flu received... the first positive result of analysis of samples afflicted with the virus H5N1," the prime minister's office said in a statement.

The cases were confirmed earlier by officials from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Outbreaks

The FAO's Dr Talib Elham was quoted by the Associated Press as saying the disease appeared to have moved north after an infected bird was taken to market in the capital, Cairo.
