PARIS (Reuters) – Cambodia has reported an outbreak of the highly pathogenic H5N6 bird flu virus among poultry, the Paris-based World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) said on Thursday, citing a report from Cambodia’s agriculture ministry.

The virus infected poultry birds at a market in Daunkeo in the south of the country, the report said.
