KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) — Poultry farmers in Nepal have stopped trucks importing chicken from India for KFC restaurants and destroyed the cargo.
Nepal has banned chicken from India since bird flu broke out in India four years ago.
Chief government administrator of Dhading district Bed Prasad Kharel says farmers stopped and seized two trucks bringing the frozen chicken to Nepal's capital, Katmandu, on Saturday. A brief scuffle broke out between police and the farmers.
Police say authorities took control of the trucks, but that after consultation with livestock officials the cargo was dumped in a pit and covered.
KFC, the only Western fast-food restaurant in Nepal, says it imports its chicken from Brazil. Kharel says the tags on the cargo showed it came from India.
KFC officials in Nepal would not immediately comment Sunday.
