The associated press is reporting that (presumably the government of) Egypt has ordered the slaughter of all pigs. Here's the quote:
"...Egypt slaughtered all its pigs and the central African nation of Gabon became the latest nation to ban pork imports, despite assurances that swine flu was not related to eating pork. "
Original stories can be found here and here.
Egypt has a christian minority that eats pork, but is a primarily muslim nation; given the religious prohibitions against pork in islam, I'm not surprised that this seems like a reasonable step.
