Tiger attacks trigger expert plea

Conservationists have urged Indonesia to halt illegal deforestation in Sumatra, after six people were killed by tigers in less than a month. International group WWF said human encroachment into the habitat of endangered Sumatran tigers had caused a crisis situation. It said clearance - for logging or palm oil - had led to the loss of almost half of Sumatra's forests in 20 years. This had put humans and tigers in conflict, WWF said.
