Bird flu has been detected at a chicken farm in Hiroshima Prefecture, the local government said Monday, prompting it to start culling around 134,000 chickens at the site and other affiliated farms.

The H5 strain, which is yet to be confirmed as a highly pathogenic type, made Hiroshima the sixth prefecture to experience an avian flu outbreak this season. All of the cases have been centered in western Japan.
