DOGUBAYAZIT, Turkey — The European Union said Saturday that lab tests confirmed that an outbreak of bird flu in poultry in Turkey was the deadly H5N1 strain, but tests were ongoing to determine whether the same strain killed two teenage siblings earlier this week.
World Health Organization officials said scientists were closing in on identifying the virus that killed a 15-year-old girl and her 14-year-old brother in eastern Turkey.
