Bangladeshi police say five people, including two children have been killed when a herd of wild elephants rampaged through a forest village.
Police say about 10 elephants also destroyed several huts and damaged crops before police firing blank shots chased them away.
The incident happened early on Thursday in a village about 350-kilometers southeast of the capital, Dhaka.
Elephants frequently damage property and crops in Bangladesh and northeastern India, where their natural habitat is rapidly shrinking because of encroachment by growing population.
