Wild elephant kills two at Rohingya camp

AFP

A wild elephant trampled to death two people, including a child, as it rampaged through a Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar yesterday, reports AFP quoting officials. The incident occurred at the massive Kutupalong camp in the southeastern border district of Cox's Bazar, where hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have taken refuge after fleeing what UN officials have called ethnic cleansing in Myanmar's Rakhine state.

"The wild elephant trampled a Rohingya child to death... and then trampled another Bangladeshi man to death when it was chased by Rohingya refugees and local villagers," Ali Kabir, the district forest department chief said. Kabir said at least another five people were injured as the elephant rampaged through flimsy tarpaulin-and-bamboo huts, which were built on forest land after the influx of refugees began nearly six months ago. "It destroyed some 100 Rohingya huts," Mohammad Nikaruzzaman, the town administrator, told AFP, adding the lone wild elephant had separated from its herd.
