Rangers in India’s Assam state have issued a shoot-on-sight order on a killer rogue elephant named after al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.
Laden has trampled 14 people to death in the past six months in the north-eastern state, officials say.
The order came after the rogue bull killed a woman on Wednesday. So far he has eluded hunters.
Humans and elephants have come into greater conflict in recent years as man encroaches on jungle territories.
So far Osama is untraceable.
