Crocodile attacks kill 2 Indonesians in 2 months

Two deadly crocodile attacks have taken two Indonesian men in the same river in less than two months.

The head of the local conservation agency says a saltwater crocodile reportedly swallowed a 20-year-old villager who was bathing Tuesday on a river on Sumatra island.

Suprianto said the 35-year-old man killed last month was dragged away and his partial corpse was found four days later about two miles from where he was attacked.

Both attacks were in Tulang Bawang district in Lampung province. Suprianto said Wednesday his office didn't yet have more details on Tuesday's attack.

No crocodile has been captured and it wasn't known if the same animal killed both men.
