Bees!

At least one man is dead and 60 are injured after a swarm of "Africanized" - or killer - bees attacked villagers in the southern Mexico state of Tabasco and the central state of Nayarit.

The attack which took the life of fisherman Jose Alvarez comes one day after an attack in the state of Nayarit which left 60 people wounded. Alvarez was fishing with his three young children when the bees attacked. The children jumped into the water, but Alvarez, who was missing an arm, didn't follow them.

Despite the recent upswing in bee attacks, Mexican officials say there is no evidence that attacks are increasing overall.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
