A lab in Prague detected the deadly strain in two dead swans found last week in the southeast of the country, said Ivan Prikryl of the regional veterinary authority in the southeastern town of Brno.

So far, the H5N1 strain has been found in 14 birds, all swans, in the Czech Republic, reports the AP.
