East Timor crocodile farm angers locals

The East Timorese government is planning to open a crocodile farm in a country where many view the animal as sacred.

The aim of the move is to stop an increasing number of people being killed by crocodiles, which has seen a rise since culls ended in 2002.

But the plan goes against deeply held beliefs.
