Fish poisoned by unknown substance


Hundreds of fish on a small river in the area of Novy Jicin were killed by poisoning from an as yet unknown substance. An exact number of fish found dead in the water and the full extent of damages is not yet known. The specimens died in a stretch of water close to the nearby Massag factory; officials have suggested a spill from the facility may be behind the poisoning. Water samples have been acquired for testing.
