Salem: At least 450 girls and boys of a model school in Kolathur near Salem from class six to plus-two level had gathered at the courtyard for a mass demo on how to keep hands clean to ‘Word Hand Washing Day’.

Even as the students were "washing their hands" to express solidarity with the global movement on the need for children in particular to keep their hands clean to avoid diseases, a swarm of bees flew out of the honeycomb and began to attack them.
