Four people were in critical condition Sunday after hornets attacked and caused a stampede at a festival held Saturday night in Yichang to celebrate tourism, Xinhua reported.
In Guilin, two villagers were stung to death and three others injured by hornets when they tried to remove a hornet's nest from a tree last week, , China's state-run news agency reported.
Hornets are especially active around their nests in autumn, said Chinese officials, who urged all nests to be reported to local fire departments for proper disposal.
