Riyadh, Rabi’I 16, 1438, December 15, 2016, SPA — The Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture has temporarily banned importing of live birds, hatching eggs and chicks from the Republic of Tunisia after the ministry received reports from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) on infections of bird flu disease in those areas.
