Giant Hornets Are Killing People In China

... According to recent reports out of China, 21 people have died as a result of wasp stings over the past three months in the province of Shaanxi alone ... This year, the hornet attacks in China have been more frequent than usual; one health official suggested to the AP that warmer temperatures have led to increased breeding among the insects. The mayor of one affected city in Shaanxi announced last week plans to establish a 24-hour emergency response team to combat hornets in light of the recent fatalities. Wasp season in China runs from May to November.

And CNN distinguishes itself again.
