Bosnia reported its first case of bird flu on Sunday, after the H5N8 strain was detected at a hen farm in the northwestern town of Prijedor.

The authorities took measures to contain the outbreak of the disease and banned visits to the farm, the state-owned Srna news agency reported citing the agriculture ministry of Bosnia’s autonomous Serb Republic, where the farm is located, Reuters reported.

Cases of bird flu have been found in a number of countries across Europe in the past months, including in neighboring Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia and Montenegro.
