For nearly two weeks there have been unconfirmed media reports of bird flu in Karnataka State, in southern India.  First described as H5N1, later reports (see FluTrackers' Thread India - Karnataka: chicken in Dasarahalli tested positive for bird flu H5N1 (media))
rolled back the identification to simply HPAI H5. 

Today the OIE has published a notification on this outbreak, which began on December 26th, and cites HPAI H5N8 as the culprit.
