From the Wall Street Journal Avian Flu News Tracker:
7:00 a.m.: German authorities have confirmed the country's first case of the deadly H5N1 bird-flu strain in domestic poultry, the Social Affairs Ministry of the state of Saxony said. The infected birds were found earlier this week on a poultry farm near Leipzig, where more than 10,000 animals already have been slaughtered as a precaution, the ministry said.
