Malaysian villager killed in tiger attack

KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) – An indigenous Malaysian villager has been killed in a tiger attack, with government rangers shooting dead the critically endangered creature after it also charged them,
authorities said.

The 59-year-old victim, Anek Along, was attacked on Friday near the town of Gua Musang in the northern Malaysian state of Kelantan.

The 120-kilogramme creature then rushed other villagers who threw spears to fend the creature off, wounding its face, according to wildlife officials.
