Germany detects H5N1 bird flu on poultry farm in Brandenburg
The farm in the Oberhavel district was sealed off and some 500 chicks, ducks and geese were culled.
The H5N1 strain is regarded as highly pathogenic, but less dangerous than the even more contagious H5N8 strain found in several European countries in the past few weeks.
