Iraq has extended a ban on imports of frozen and live poultry products to its country by certain countries which includes Nigeria, their government disclosed today.

“The import of poultry and birds of all kinds … as well as both types of eggs (table and hatching), feathers and all products that use poultry or their products … is prohibited,” a government statement said.

The affected exporters are Nigeria, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Bhutan, China, Egypt, Ghana, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Ivory Coast, Kazakhstan, Laos, Libya, Myanmar, Mexico, Nepal, Niger, North Korea, Palestine, South Africa, South Korea and Vietnam who are believed to be going through avian flu threat.
