A troop of monkeys killed a 72-year-old man to death in the village of Tikri in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, according to the Times of India.

Giving a different account of what happened, Krishnapal Singh, the brother of the 70-year-old, said that Dharampal was collecting wood for a "havan" (ritual) when he was attacked by the monkeys.

The man, hit on the head and chest, succumbed to injuries at a hospital later.

Egypt able to broker Israel-Hamas truce in Gaza
Tel Aviv's patience appears to be running extremely thin from the seven months of violence along the Israeli-Gaza border. Israel retaliated with airstrikes and has beefed up its military forces along the border.

Villagers have repeatedly complained about aggressive monkeys in the area, but the animals are a protected species. "We were definitely informed of the freakish accident and we registered it in our case diary after which a post-mortem was also conducted".

It is thought the monkeys who attacked Mr Singh had collected bricks from a rundown building nearby.

Krishnapal Singh said the family will now meet senior police officers and request them to take action against the primates. He added that when the group of monkeys started jumping on the pile, it collapsed on Dharampal and he sustained serious injuries to his head and chest.
