The Public Authority of Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources has banned imports of all bird species from Canada over fears of bird flu. The authority's Chairperson and Director General Nabila Al-Khalil on Thursday issued a temporary ban on live bird imports from Canada, the authority said in a statement. The move was prompted by a recent report by World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) on outbreak of the highly pathogenic flu in Canada, it added.
