Elephant kills tourist

A 59-year-old Austrian tourist has been killed by an elephant while on a camping trip in Namibia, the southern African country’s Ministry of Environment and Tourism said Friday. The man, who has not been publicly identified, was among a group of tourists staying at an undesignated camping site on the Huab river in the Kunene region of northwestern Namibia, the ministry said in a statement on its Facebook page. “This is a very unfortunate incident and highly regrettable,” the statement said. “We wish to express our sincere condolences to the bereaved family and friends of the deceased.”
