Sharpshooters in India's northeast have killed a rogue elephant blamed for 14 deaths in the region and was so feared that villagers named him after Osama bin Laden, wildlife officials said Sunday. "Dipen Phukan, a licensed shooter, shot and killed the three meter (10 foot) tall bull near the Behali forest reserve in northern Assam," wildlife warden Chandan Bora said. Wildlife authorities had ordered that the elephant be shot and killed by December 31. The order came after the bull, dubbed "Laden" - which has twice evaded attempts to kill him - was blamed for the death of a woman Wednesday near the thickly wooded evergreen jungle where it lives.
