    THESSALONIKI, Greece — Thousands of birds have been found dead at a
    lake in northern Greece, authorities said Thursday.

    Regional government officials held an emergency meeting after more
    than 3,000 dead birds were found at Lake Koronia, just east of this
    northern port city.

    The cause of their death was not immediately known.

    The birds, found mostly by hunters, included Dalmatian pelicans,
    black-winged stilts, and shovelers.

    Some of the dead birds and water samples from the lake have been
    sent to laboratories for testing.
