KUWAIT (Reuters) - The bird flu virus found in a flamingo in Kuwait is the highly pathogenic strain which has killed more than 60 people in Asia, an official said on Friday. Kuwait had earlier announced that it had found the Gulf Arab region's first known case of the H5N1 avian flu virus in one of two infected birds culled by authorities. But officials had not been able to say exactly which strain of the virus it was. "The H5N1 (case) was highly pathogenic, HPA," Mohammad Muhanna, an official at Kuwait's agriculture authority, told Reuters. There are two forms of H5N1, the second being the low pathogenic strain known as H5N1 (LPA).
