Sakher, a crocodile captured and named by Palestinian police after it lived in a sewage pond since fleeing the zoo in Beit Lahia, northern Gaza Strip two years ago, is seen through cage bars. Police officer Lt. Col. Samih al-Sultan says after weeks of chasing the reptile, they finally caught him by entangling him in shark nets. The crocodile was originally bought into blockaded Gaza through a smuggling tunnel linking the territory to neighboring Egypt.
