DR Congo | Ranger killed by militia in Virunga NP

A wildlife park in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo that is home to critically endangered mountain gorillas says a park ranger has been killed after an attack by armed militia at a ranger post on Lake Edward.


Virunga National Park said the situation has been stabilized and an investigation into Wednesday morning's attack has been opened. It said Kasereka Masumbuko Ezechiel has worked at the park since 2012, expressing gratitude for his service and sending condolences to his family.
