    SHANGHAI - Poultry markets in China's biggest city Shanghai were shut down on Friday and thousands of birds slaughtered as authorities attempted to prevent the spread of a new strain of bird flu, which has now claimed six lives. Shanghai ordered all live poultry markets in the city closed on Friday after culling more than 20,000 birds.

    Cant be good for any of us
