Pili Omari Mande, the Lindi regional police commander, said the two miners were attacked by a herd of elephants on their way home from a mining area at Mihima hills in Liwale district.
Mande said the elephants with their calves trampled the miners to death, and the bodies of the deceased were discovered by a cyclist.
“The elephants attacked the miners after their calves made loud, high-pitched sounds,” she said.
Mande urged people to take precautionary measures against wild animals in Liwale district that stray from the Nyerere National Park.
