A second body part, reported to be a hand, was found at a postal facility late on Tuesday.
Crocs kill two
LAMPUNG, Indonesia - Two deadly crocodile attacks have taken two Indonesian men in the same river in less than two months.
The head of the local conservation agency says a saltwater crocodile reportedly swallowed a 20-year-old villager who was bathing on Tuesday on a river on Sumatra island.
Suprianto said the 35-year-old man killed last month was dragged away and his partial corpse was found four days later about 2.5 kilometres from where he was attacked.
JERUSALEM - Israels defence minister has abruptly proposed that Israel consider unilateral action if long-stalled peace talks with the Palestinians dont produce a deal - suggesting Israel may be thinking of withdrawing on its own from parts of the West Bank, as it did from the Gaza Strip seven years ago.

SYDNEY - Facebook and other social networking sites are all about putting names to faces, but half of Australians do not want them to use facial recognition technology to get the job done.
A national Newspoll of more than 1200 people found 95 per cent of those surveyed believed it was acceptable for airport officials to use facial recognition software to identify passengers on police watchlists.
Some 92 per cent said police should be able to use the same technology to identify people from CCTV footage.
