KHULNA, Bangladesh, Jan 23 (Reuters Life!) – A woman was killed by a tiger in Bangladesh’s part of the Sundarbans mangrove forest on Wednesday, officials said.
The tiger attacked while she was fishing in a swamp and forest officials retrieved her body several hours later, they said.
 
Around 300,000 mostly poor people live in areas surrounding the Sundarbans, home to around 400 of the endangered Royal Bengal tiger.
 
The 6,000 sq km (2,320 sq mile) part of the forest in Bangladesh, and a further 4,000 sq km (1,545 sq miles) into India’s eastern state of West Bengal, is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
 
Tigers are responsible for about 10 deaths a year.
