BANGALORE (Reuter) - A tiger grabbed a five-year-old Indian girl from a tourist coach at a national park and dragged her away as 25 others in the vehicle watched helplessly, police said yesterday.

The tourists were being driven around the park, about 15 miles from the city of Bangalore in southern India, on Sunday evening when the tiger attacked.

Police said the tiger smashed the van's window, grabbed the girl by the head and dragged her away.

The child's body, partially eaten, was found an hour later by a search party.
