U.S. officials predict a return of avian flu in the fall

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 04/29/2015 - 06:35
By Julie Steenhuysen and P.J. Huffstutter CHICAGO (Reuters) - U.S. agriculture officials say it is “highly probable” that the virulent avian flu viruses that have hit U.S. poultry operations hard in recent weeks will return next fall when wild bird populations migrate south, potentially spreading the viruses into new regions of the country. Officials with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) told Reuters the H5N2 virus – along with two other highly pathogenic strains of bird flu - will likely be passed among birds at breeding grounds in the northern United States and Canada through the summer. The strains are difficult to control, say scientists, in part because wild birds – especially ducks – can carry the viruses without appearing to be sick. The USDA statement marks a shift in tone in the agency's assessment of the likelihood for a renewed outbreak tied to fall migration.

Commission approves policy for Los Angeles police body cameras

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 04/29/2015 - 06:13
By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The Los Angeles Police Commission approved a policy on Tuesday clearing the way for the widespread use of body cameras by patrol officers in the second-largest U.S. city, as tensions rise in the United States over police use-of-force incidents. Mayor Eric Garcetti said in December the city would equip 7,000 Los Angeles Police Department officers with the devices over the next two years to capture their day-to-day interactions with civilians. The commission's 3-1 vote on rules governing the use of the devices brings Los Angeles closer to becoming the largest U.S. city to put body cameras into widespread use. Officials are also testing the use of body cameras by officers in Baltimore, which on Monday saw riots following several days of protests over the death of a black man who suffered a fatal spine injury while in police custody.
