      (ATTN: CHANGES headline, lead; UPDATES with outbreak of additional case in paras 2-6)

      SEOUL, April 2 (Yonhap) -- South Korea has detected an additional case of foot-and-mouth (FMD) disease at a pig farm west of Seoul, near the farm that reported the first case this year, the agriculture ministry said Monday.

      The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs said it has detected an additional FMD outbreak at the farm in Gimpo, 30 kilometers northwest of the capital city, during an inspection into its livestock.

      The ministry said it is conducting an in-depth analysis into the farm of about 3,000 pigs to figure out its link with the nearby farm.

      South Korea confirmed an A-type FMD case in a farm in Gimpo on March 27, leading to the culling of over 900 pigs at the affected farm as a preventive measure.

      It was the first time that the highly infectious animal disease had been detected at a pig farm since the previous case in South Chungcheong Province two years ago...
