  • FILE - In this Thursday, April 26, 2012 file photo, Balinese government officials prepare to cull chickens as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of bird flu, at a market in Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia after an eight-year-old boy died from bird flu in a Bali hospital two days prior. Four months after the federal government sought to block publication of two studies about creating an easily spread form of bird flu, a revised version of one paper is seeing the light of day. The revision, which the government supports, was published online Wednesday, May 2, 2012 by the journal Nature. It�s the latest step in a saga that pit fears about guarding against a lethal flu pandemic versus concerns about helping terrorists create bioweapons.
