A teenager has been killed in what officials in Nepal have described as a "rare" attack by a tiger.

Police say that the attack took place as the 17-year-old went in to the Chitwan National Park to cut grass with four friends.

Experts say there have been fewer tiger attacks in Nepal in recent years because of their declining numbers.

Meanwhile three people were hurt by a leopard in a village near the capital Kathmandu.

Newspaper reports say villagers were left terrorised by the attack.
