Has there been any fatalities caused by octopi?

To what extent are octopi violent towards humans? Has there been any confirmed fatalities? The source of all knowledge claims that some have the capacity to kill humans, and claims there have been documented instances of attacks but doesn't list any sources.

I found this wiki.answers.com claiming humans have been poisoned by octopi. Also I'm interested if the altercation was provoked
