Foot and mouth outbreak in Sth Korea

9:40 am on 25 July 2014

There's been an outbreak of foot and mouth disease in South Korea in the country's pigs - the first outbreak of the disease in the country for three years.

About 600 pigs have been slaughtered to stop it spreading.

However, South Korean government officials don't believe foot and mouth will spread too far as it's one of the three strains of foot and mouth that the country vaccinates livestock against.
