Iraq: Government Issues Highest Avian Influenza Alert

After neighboring countries reported additional AI virus victims, including three dead in Turkey who tested positive for the H5N1 virus, the Iraqi government issued the highest AI warning level on January 12 in northern Iraq where the Zaytun unit is deployed. As one might recognize from the image below, it is a Korean armored vehicle that is being sterilized.
