    "'Killer Cucumber' Bug From Spain Hits Germans in Britain "

    Three people in Britain have been diagnosed with a lethal strain of E.Coli that has already killed five people in Germany.

    Almost 300 people in northern Germany are in hospital and around 500 more are being tested for the infection.

    Organic cucumbers from Spain are thought to be the source of the bacteria, but travellers to Germany are also being advised to avoid eating raw tomatoes and lettuce.

    The Robert Koch Institute, Germany's national disease centre, said 60 cases had been reported in the last 24 hours alone, and infections have also been confirmed in Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands.

    Britain's Health Protection Authority has confirmed that the two UK victims are Germans who travelled from the country and fell ill after entering Britain.

    A third UK victim has been struck down with similar symptoms but is still undergoing tests.

    This sounds like a ripoff of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
