Over now to the latest on the bird flu outbreak in the nation,
The government says it now suspects that a migratory bird called the "bean goose" could be the culprit behind the country's first avian flu in three years in addition to the baikal teal ducks originally blamed for bringing the virus to Korea.
The Agriculture Ministry says that H5N8, the same AI strain found in the baikal teal ducks, was detected in the carcasses of bean geese found near a reservoir where the outbreak was first detected in Gochang-gun County, Jeollabuk-do Province.
The ministry added that the number of farms in Korea infected with avian influenza has now increased to eight, and that six other farms are being inspected for signs of the virus.
