France orders poultry indoors as bird flu risk level raised to "high"

PARIS, Nov 10 (Reuters) - France raised its risk level regarding bird flu to "high" from "moderate", it said in a decree published in the official journal on Thursday, thereby forcing poultry farms to keep birds indoors across the country.

France has detected a rise in bird flu outbreaks in the past weeks after experiencing its worst-ever bird flu crisis between November and May, with over 19 million animals being culled to stem a severe strain of the disease. (Reporting by Sybille de La Hamaide, editing by Gus Trompiz)
