  • Description

    Some 15,000 birds in Malden, Missouri were killed recently by liquid detergent bombs dropped from aircraft. The detergent washed away the birds' natural oils and they froze to death. Now farmers, across the Mississippi River in Milan, Tennessee, want the U.S. Government to kill hoardes of blackbirds which they say are endangering health and crops.

    On Tuesday (16 February) a reporter from the American National Broadcasting Corporation interviewed an official of the U.S. Department of the Interior -- under whose aegis the programme would be carried out -- about the nature of the operation.
