More than 40,000 turkeys have been destroyed at a farm in Limburg after a mild variant of bird flu H5N2 was discovered.

The Agriculture Minister Henk Bleker was unable to say where the virus had come from after a visit to the farm near the town of Kelpen Oler. The animals were destroyed according to protocol. Poultry at farms within three kilometres from the farm will also be tested in the next few days.
