Dead Iraqi Cats Infected With H5N1 Virus

Medical researchers say domestic cats that died during an outbreak of bird flu in Iraq last February were infected with the H5N1 virus. The cats were found infected with a distinct strain of the H5N1 virus known as Clade II.

Clade II was first found in migrating birds in western China in 2005.
