Wild elephant kills two at Rohingya camp in BangladeshA wild elephant Thursday trampled to death two people, including a child, as it rampaged through a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, officials said. 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, told AFP.
