Islamabad, Apr 20 (UNI) Pakistan culled over 15,000 chicken on the outskirts of the Capital.

''These 15,000 chickens were culled last night at a poultry farm while another 5,000 at a nearby farm are being slaughtered today,'' Dr Muhammad Afzal, Commissioner Livestock and Animal Husbandry said while talking to UNI here today.

He said while laboratory tests on the samples obtained from the two farms are awaited, it is clear that they will be positive.

At least 3,500 chicken at a small poultry farm near Islamabad had been culled last Sunday after authorities received positive results on the samples they had sent to the National Polutry Avian Influenza Laboratory in the capital.
