SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea said on Saturday a poultry farm was hit by bird flu, saying it found the H5N1 strain of avian influenza in the country's first outbreak in three years of the virus that is potentially fatal for humans.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The U.S. military said it killed 22 insurgents in two separate clashes on Saturday just north of Baghdad, shortly after carrying out three air strikes that destroyed a bomb-making factory.
In one incident, the U.S. military said in a statement that they killed 12 insurgents including a militant suspected of rigging cars with explosives along a road north of Baghdad.
The U.S. military said earlier they killed 10 insurgents after destroying a bomb-making factory in the town of Taji, a mostly Sunni town near a major U.S. air base, in air strikes.
"After the fighting, Coalition Forces ... discovered significant caches consisting of rocket-propelled grenades, machineguns, anti-aircraft weapons, pipe bombs and more than 3,000 feet of detonation cord," the military said. It said U.S. forces suffered no casualties, but a teenager was killed and a pregnant woman wounded in one of the clashes.
