Elephants to be banned on roads in Indian city

Authorities in the southern Indian state of Kerala are considering a ban on the movement of elephants on city roads.

It follows an incident in the port of Cochin where an elephant killed his keeper and later went on the rampage

Though police have promised to take action against the owners of the "guilty'' elephant, civic officials are concerned about the safety of residents on the roads during peak hours.

It is being reported 15 people have died after being attacked by elephants last year alone.
