THE BIRD FLU
A Palestinian works in a chicken farm in the outskirts of Gaza City, Gaza Strip, Oct. 24, 2005.The Palestinian Authority has been imposing a blanket ban on the import of birds and eggs to ward off a possible outbreak of bird flu, the agriculture ministry announced. Authorities in Israel and the Palestinian areas are preparing for a local outbreak of bird flu as an Israeli Health Ministry official said last week that the outbreak was only a matter of time, and likely to happen soon, because of migrating birds that are liable to carry the disease from Turkey, Greece or Romania.
