LOSPALOS, East Timor – Mario Da Cruz could only watch in horror as a small army of crocodiles killed a child on an East Timor beach – another victim of the tiny nation’s soaring rate of attacks.

Such incidents have jumped more than 20-fold over the past two decades with an average of one person a month falling prey to the ferocious reptiles, though not all are fatal.

“I was walking along the beach and suddenly this group of crocodiles came out of the water so I panicked and ran, but one of them bit my leg,” explained Da Cruz.
