Africanized killer bees attack match in Panama

You don’t see this on the football pitch every day.

Last week a second division match in Panama between Chriqui and Tauro had to be stopped in the 5th minute of the second half after Africanized killer bees swarmed on to the pitch.

Incredible scenes saw the players throw themselves to the ground, the refereee call a halt to the proceedings and panic in the stands.

Firefighters were called in and the match resumed after a 25 minute delay. The game ended 1-1.
