Camper killed by lions while showering

The man was attacked while using an outside shower at a fishing camp near Mana Pools National Park. The area, located on the Zambesi River, is popular with hunters, most of whom stay in basic camps that offer little protection against attack by wild animals. Eight villagers were killed in a spate of lion attacks over a period of about two months this year, he said. Those attacks only stopped when a pride of lions was killed.
