A new infection of the deadly H5N1 strain of the bird flu virus among domestic fowls has been discovered in Egypt, the official news// agency MENA reported Saturday.

The Health Ministry said that new infection was discovered in Luxor, some 680 km south of Cairo. Tests on domestic birds at the city's Najaa al-Abayda Lab turned up positive for the H5N1 virus, said the ministry's spokesman Abdel-Rahman Shahin.
