Police hunt Leone ‘killer chimps’

`Police in Sierra Leone are on the hunt for a group of chimpanzees, who escaped from their wildlife sanctuary after a fatal attack on construction workers.

Armed reinforcements are combing the area after a Sierra Leonean died and two Americans were seriously injured. [..]

A worker at Tacugama told the BBC that some 24 chimpanzees had escaped, and six had already returned.

Armed police arrived after the attack and fired shots which caused panic among local people.’
