A German tourist has been trampled to death by an elephant as she tried to photograph the animal in Zimbabwe.
Authorities in Zimbabwe say the attack occurred on Wednesday in Mana Pools National Park and the tourist succumbed to her injuries later the same day.
The woman was in a group of tourists who encountered a herd of elephants upon entering the park. According to the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority spokesman Tinashe Farawo, the authorities are yet to establish what irritated the animals and led to the attack.
