BEIJING — Chinese agriculture officials reported late Thursday 300 more chickens have died from avian influenza in Liaoning Province in northeast China, where a string of bird flu cases have been reported since last month.

The Ministry of Agriculture said it had confirmed a Sunday report of mass deaths among domestic chickens in four villages of Beining, part of the northeastern coastal city Jinzhou, was from the H5N1 virus, which has spread to humans in other countries. Local authorities killed 2.5 million more poultry within a 3-kilometer radius after the Beining discovery, the ministry said in a statement.
