The Myanmar Times - - World -

A croc­o­dile which broke into a Sri Lankan po­lice sta­tion and stayed the night forced con­sta­bles to aban­don their posts un­til it was cap­tured by wildlife au­thor­i­ties, of­fi­cers said. Po­lice said the 6-foot (2-me­tre) croc­o­dile barged in through a back door of the crime branch at Nochchiyagama sta­tion, 190 kilo­me­tres (118 miles) north of Colombo. Lo­cals are ac­cus­tomed to fre­quent ele­phant at­tacks on vil­lages in the re­mote area, but a in­va­sive croc­o­dile was a rar­ity. – AFP
