Crocodile hunt continues after boy snatched

Australian police have shot two crocodiles dead in a search for a missing 12-year-old boy attacked by a crocodile on Sunday.

The 12-year old was snatched by the crocodile while swimming with friends in a water hole in Kakadu National Park, in the Northern Territory.

Rangers said neither of the two crocodiles appeared to be the attacker, and that the search would continue.

Police Sergeant Stephen Constable describes the search.
