Two British Citizens ‘kidnapped in DR Congo’

The UK Foreign Office is investigating reports that two Britons have been kidnapped in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Local media say a female wildlife ranger – who was with the two Britons – was killed.

The attack happened just north of the city of Goma in the Virunga National Park.

The area is known for its mountain gorillas but there have been many killings and kidnappings in recent years.
