STOCKHOLM, DENMARK - Bird flu virus has, according to this story, been detected on a farm in Denmark's central Fyn island, the country's veterinary department announced Monday.

Some 2,000 chickens on the farm in Stenstrup on the island will be culled Tuesday to contain the spread of the disease, the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration was cited as saying in a statement .

Initial checks show that the virus detected is not the deadly H5N1 strain that has ravaged Southeast Asia over the past two years.
