Indonesian man killed by dragons
Komodo dragons, of course - but still quite remarkable. The first adult human death in 30 years. In television documentaries they look to be rather modest in size and slow afoot, but like all reptiles they are probably capable of bursts of speed, and this man presumably had injured himself after falling out of a tree. It must have been a horrible way to die. Details at the Guardian.
