Rescue workers in Indonesia are searching for five men who were trapped up a tree by several tigers.

The group was attacked on Thursday on Sumatra island after accidentally killing a tiger cub with a deer trap.

The injured animal attracted nearby tigers, which then killed one of the men before the others managed to flee up some branches and telephone for help.

Local police say a 30-member search team is scouring the jungle to find the men.
