Algeria's peace-keeping bees
ALGIERS - A swarm of bees, angry at the destruction of their habitat during unrest in a disputed area of the Algerian Sahara, have begun to fight back, the APS news agency reported Wednesday.
The bees swooped down on rival gangs who threatened to destroy their hives, witness Nadjib Dridi said.
The incident happened in the Biskra region 400 km (250 miles) south-east of Algiers on Monday.
That evening, the swollen, bee-stung enemies made their peace, it was reported.
