A boy was killed after being snatched from a boat by a saltwater crocodile in the southern Philippines, as the reptiles' shrinking habitat leads to repeated attacks, authorities said Wednesday. The 10-year-old was on board with his two older siblings near the town of Balabac, which is notorious for confrontations with the massive creatures, when he was yanked into the water. The Philippines' booming development and population have steadily invaded the creatures' habitat, forcing them into ever-smaller stretches of swamp.
