16 August 2012

Two wild elephants have killed two villagers and injured three in a remote village in southern Bangladesh. Forest Department official Sheikh Abdul Wahab said a man and a woman were killed separately early Wednesday in Uttar Para village. They attacked while villagers were either asleep or were preparing their dawn meal before their daytime Ramadan fast. Wahab said 22-year-old Amena Begum was attacked outside her house and was unable to get inside. The man was killed while on his way to a mosque alone. Uttar Para is in a coastal district bordering a forested region of Burma.—AP
