    Montenegro reported its first case of bird flu on Tuesday after a dead duck was found infected with the H5N8 strain of the illness on Lake Skadar in the east of the country, state television reported.

    Cases of bird flu have been found in a number of countries across Europe, including in neighbouring Serbia and Croatia, as well as in and in Asia over the past month.

    Montenegro's food safety agency said there was no risk for humans but recommended that farmers keep their chickens indoors and take all preventive measures, the television reported.
