Phnom Penh, Apr 19 (Xinhua) Cambodia has reported the first outbreak of highly pathogenic H5N6 bird flu virus among poultry, World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) said in a statement late Thursday.

Citing the information provided by the Cambodian Ministry of Agriculture, the statement said the virus infected poultry birds at a market in the country's southern Takeo province's Daunkeo district.
