COLOMONCAGUA, Honduras, March 12 (UPI) -- Two young girls died in Honduras after they were attacked by a swarm of Africanized bees, officials said.
The bees had built a hive in an avocado tree behind a home in the village of San Antonio near Colomoncagua, Honduras, La Prensa reported Monday.
Yerlin Anaim Yanes Sanchez, 6, and Dayli Carolina Yanez, 5, were killed in Wednesday night's attack. Another girl and her mother were hospitalized recovering from bee stings, La Prensa reported.
The bees were allegedly provoked when a boy threw a rock at the hive.
