Luca Attanasio was travelling in a convoy near the town of Kanyamahoro at shortly after 10am this morning (8am GMT) when hijackers attempted to kidnap some members, the Virunga National Park told Reuters.

He was among two killed in the attack.

Park rangers intervened to resuce the parties involved but sadly Mr Attanasio died.

Many armed groups operate in and around Virunga, which lies along Congo’s borders with Rwanda and Uganda, and they have repeatedly attacked Virunga rangers.
