SEJONG, Feb. 18 (Yonhap) -- The South Korean government said Tuesday it will enforce stricter requirements in issuing licenses for animal farms in its latest measure to battle animal diseases.

The measure was announced as quarantine authorities confirmed more than 70 cases of avian influenza (AI) since the first outbreak reported on Jan. 16 at a duck farm in Gochang, some 300 kilometers southwest of Seoul in North Jeolla Province.
