Tigers in peril in Bangladesh

Humans and big cats fight for space as tiger territory in Sunderbans is encroached.



    The Sunderbans forest in Bangladesh is home to the world's largest tiger reserve.

    An estimated 500 Royal Bengal tigers roam the mangroves and the forest has long remained untouched.

    But because of rising sea levels humans have been forced to move into the tiger's territory.

    As Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports, this has had deadly consequences for both man and beast.
