Macaracas, Los Santos - At least six people were stung this Wednesday, July 4, by a swarm of Africanized bees in the community of El Cedro Abajo, in the province of Los Santos. Five of those who were stung were taken to a emergency room of the Luis H. Moreno hospital by members of the Fire Department of that province. It was reported firefighters are trying to control the aggressive swarm of bees. (Prensa)

Editor's Comment: All honey bees in Panama are now "Africanized" - meaning they are more aggressive and prone to swarm and sting anything they see as a potential threat.
