Some 400 pigs were killed by African swine fever since March 22

Cambodia reported a first outbreak of African swine fever (ASF) in backyard pigs near the Vietnam border, the Paris-based World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) said on Wednesday, citing the Cambodian agriculture ministry.

Reuters reports the disease, which is incurable in pigs but harmless to humans, has spread rapidly across China before hitting Vietnam in February.

Some 400 pigs were killed by ASF in Soamkanign in the Rattanakiri province in an outbreak that began on March 22.
