More to Fight Bird Flu

Sweden is to give more than 9 million dollars to help international organizations fight the spread of bird flu.

The Foreign Ministry said Tuesday that the money will be given to the World Health Organization, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization and other agencies.

The pledge is in addition to funds that Sweden already contributes through the EU to help stop the spread of bird flu.
