" MATSUE : The Shimane prefectural government said Thursday it has killed all 21,500 chickens and begun incinerating their bodies at a local farm where five birds were confirmed infected with the highly virulent bird flu the previous day.

Efforts to disinfect the farm in the city of Yasuki are to be completed by early next week while a government lab in Ibaraki Prefecture is trying to assess the virulence of the H5 virus and the farm ministry is investigating how the birds got infected."
