Afghanistan's only known pig has been locked in a room, away from visitors to Kabul zoo where it normally grazes beside deer and goats, because people are worried it could infect them with the virus popularly known as swine flu.I checked the date but it wasn't April 1.
Is there any real risk?
There are no pig farms in Afghanistan and no direct civilian flights between Kabul and Mexico.Frankly the whole article is hilarious.
"We understand that, but most people don't have enough knowledge. When they see the pig in the cage they get worried and think that they could get ill," Saqib said.
