British tourist killed by bees on holiday in AfricaRex


A British tourist has been killed by a swarm of bees while on holiday in Africa.

Mick Bryan, 61, and his wife Jacqueline, 43, were on a trip exploring Tanzania, and had just celebrated her birthday when the attack took place.

The couple had pulled into an isolated campsite to have lunch, when Mick heard the buzzing noise and reportedly told his wife to run.

A family source told The Sun: "He was covered in bees. He tried to drive off but it all happened too quickly. Jacqueline couldn't get any phone reception so she had to run to the main road for help."

Mick, whose sister Louise described him as a "wonderful man", was a mechanic and had three children from a previous marriage.
