NETHERLANDS: EU extends bird flu controls
The EU has extended bans on poultry movement within the Netherlands and on exports of hatching eggs and poultry until midnight on Friday, in order to contain an outbreak of avian influenza. The emergency measures were due to expire at midday on Thursday. EU vets are to meet again on Thursday, when results from a programme to check 40% of Dutch farms for the disease will be available. If the results are positive, controls may be lifted on Thursday, reported Reuters.
