From 300 children bitten by monkeys

MONKEYS lurking at an ancient Hindu temple in India's northeast have attacked up to 300 children over three weeks, temple officials said today.

"They hide in trees and swoop on unsuspecting children loitering about in the temple premises or walking by, clawing them and even sucking a bit of blood," Bani Kumar Sharma, a priest at the Kamakhya temple in Assam state, told The Associated Press. The temple, one of the most famous in India, is located in Gauhati, Assam's capital.

At least 2000 rhesus monkeys roam in and around the temple, but none had shown aggressive behaviour in the past, the priest said.
