6 Virunga partk rangers killed

Five rangers and a driver were killed in an ambush in the Virunga national park in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) on Monday.  A sixth ranger was injured in the attack that took place in the central section of the vast reserve, known globally for its population of rare mountain gorillas.

The loss of life was the worst in the history of the national park, where more than 170 rangers have died protecting animals over the last 20 years.

The rising toll has earned the park a reputation as one of the most dangerous conservation projects in the world. Last August, five rangers were killed when local militia attacked their post in the northern part of the park on the shores of Lake Edward.

A statement from the Virunga described “deep sadness” following the ambush. “We have sadly lost six rangers,” the park’s spokesman, Joel Malembe, said.

Virunga national park is located in DRC’s unstable North Kivu province. It covers 7,800 square kilometres (3,011 miles).
