A herd of wild elephants went on the rampage again, killing a woman and destroying almost all houses at a village in riot-ravaged Kandhamal district.br />
The wild herd, which is believed to have run away from the Lakhary elephant reserve in neighbouring Gajapati district, have been wrecking havoc in Kandhamal's Simanbadi, Baliguda and K Nuagaon forest range areas for the past three months. So far, they have killed at least at least nine people and damaged over 400 houses across 51 villages.

"Last year's communal riots pale before this present menace," Kanistha Pradhan (70) of Adagadu village in the tribal-dominated district said on Tuesday.
