Sting in the tail? Screams as bees interrupt Obama's story

Bees prompted screams from children listening to US President Barack Obama's story during the White House Easter egg roll in Washington.

The president, who was reading from Where the Wild Things Are, laughed as he tried to calm the youngsters down.

"Bees are good. They won't land on you. They won't sting you. They'll be okay," he said.

The Easter Monday festivities included the marking of the fifth anniversary of Michelle Obama's "Let's Move!'' initiative, to encourage exercise and healthy eating.
