font size    

Some 30 countries are now banning imports of French poultry and poultry products, French Ministry for Foreign Trade announced Tuesday.

France is the first European Union (EU) country where the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu has been confirmed in a poultry farm.

A total of 12 percent French poultry exports have been affected by the ban, according to the French ministry, saying that the situation had been worsened since Monday when French Junior Trade Minister Christine Lagarde said around 20 countries had applied total or partial bans.

The United States joined the move and announced Tuesday the ban on some poultry products from the French department of Ain, central east France, the region hit by the H5N1 virus.
