(Agence France-Presse) Police on the Indonesian holiday island of Bali warned tourists to be on guard Friday after a huge python killed a security guard at a luxury beachfront hotel.

The four-metre (13-foot) snake is still on the loose after the attack early Thursday at the Bali Hyatt, which is in the popular Sanur area but currently closed for renovation.

The security guard, Ambar Arianto Mulyo, spotted the serpent and succeeded in catching it, a police official said.
