A female tourist from Yunnan Province was badly injured when four elephants attacked her on a road neighbouring a nature reserve in Xishuangbanna over the weekend.

The woman was resting with her tour group at the side of the road when the four elephants attacked.

Experts said such attacks were rarely reported and that the elephants may have been frightened by someone else nearby.
