Jordan began culling 50,000 birds in poultry farms along its western border Wednesday in case avian flu has entered the country from Israel, the Ministry of Agriculture said. Ministry spokesman Faisal al-Awawdeh said the cull was taking place on the Jordanian side of the Jordan Valley, where bird flu was detected late last month. The culling is "a precaution to prevent the spread of avian flu to the Jordanian side of the valley," al-Awawdeh said.
