2 die as elephants stampede through Rohingya slum
Two Rohingya refugees, including a minor boy, have been trampled to death after a herd of wild elephants ran through a newly-built slum for Rohingya at Kutupalong in Ukhiya upazila of Cox's Bazar. Locals said five to six elephants stampeded through a corner of the Modhurchhara Rohingya slum in the early hours on Sunday. Shamsul Alam, 55, from Bolibazar Fokirer Deil area in Rakhine state, and his two-year-old son Syedul Amin were trampled to death as the elephants ravaged a few huts before returning to nearby forest. Five people were also injured. Ukhiya police station Officer-in-Charge (investigation) Md Kai Kislu told the Dhaka Tribune that some huts had been built about a week ago. The huts were built blocking a corridor for the wild elephants dwelling in the close by forest patches, he added.
