Local media says wild elephants that lost their habitats in last year's devastating cyclone are destroying farm lands and attacking villagers as they forage for food. The privately owned Weekly Eleven journal said Monday that wild elephants lost a swath of their habitat as Cyclone Nargis destroyed forests of the Rakhine mountain range in the southern tip of the Irrawaddy River delta. The journal did not say whether villagers had been killed or injured in the attacks or if authorities were taking any preventive measures. The area was the first hit by the cyclone on May 2, which left nearly 140,000 people dead or missing in the delta and other areas. International and domestic operations to help survivors continue.
