Did this farm cause E. coli outbreak?

A farm in northern Germany has been identified as the most likely source of many of the infections in the E. coli outbreak that has left 22 people dead.

The farm, producing beansprouts, is located south of Hamburg, the epicentre of the outbreak that has also made more than 2,000 people ill.

German officials were awaiting results of tests on the farm's produce that would offer more conclusive proof.

The BBC's Stephen Evans in Berlin said there had been a lack of clarity since the outbreak began.
