A lion at South Africa's East London zoo mauled a man to death after he jumped into the animal's enclosure on Tuesday, a government official said. Security camera footage showed the man paying the entrance fee and entering the zoo at around 9 a.m. (0700 GMT), local government spokeswoman Thandy Matebese told the Daily Dispatch newspaper. "We suspect that he used the corner of the security wall and the fence of the lion’s enclosure to climb up and jumped over the fence," Matebese said.

By Noah Browning and David Alexander DUBAI/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Iranian forces boarded a Marshall Islands-flagged cargo ship in the Gulf on Tuesday after patrol boats fired warning shots across its bow and ordered it deeper into Iranian waters, the Pentagon said. U.S. planes and a destroyer were monitoring the situation after the vessel, the MV Maersk Tigris, made a distress call in the Strait of Hormuz, one of the world's most important oil shipping channels. There was no immediate word from Iranian officials. Reuters tracking data showed the Maersk, a 65,000-tonne container ship, off the Iranian coast between the islands of Qeshm and Hormuz.
