The Kumamoto Prefectural Government finished culling around 93,000 chickens at a poultry farm Wednesday after tests confirmed Japan’s latest bird flu outbreak.

The farm in the town of Nankan reported to health authorities on Monday afternoon that a group of some 50 chickens was found dead there. Five of the carcasses and two live chickens from the farm tested positive for bird flu in a preliminary examination.
