Woman partially swallowed by python

Hmm.. wonder what kind of python it is... burm? retic? Which of the giant pythons are native to Bangladesh?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

RANGAMATI, Bangladesh -- Police in Bangladesh say villagers beat a huge python to death after the snake half-swallowed and killed a woman.

An official says a 38-year-old-woman was collecting wood in a southeastern forest when the python attacked her. The nearly 10-foot snake wrapped itself around the woman, crushing her. She had been swallowed up to the waist, head first.

A mob of villagers killed the snake with iron rods and sticks before retrieving the woman's body.
