    SEOUL, Dec. 11 (Yonhap) -- South Korea confirmed an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza (AI) at a duck farm in the southwestern region and culled 76,000 ducks to prevent the further spread of the virus, the agriculture ministry said Monday.

    The H5N6 bird flu was discovered on a farm in Yeongam, 380 kilometers south of Seoul, on Sunday, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs said.

    It marks the fourth confirmation of highly pathogenic AI this season, following two outbreaks in Jeolla Province and one on the southern island of Jeju last month.
