The killed Italian ambassador




On February 22, the Italian ambassador to the Democratic Republic of Congo and his body guard were shot dead in a militant attack that targeted the UN-linked convoy.


According to reports, the convoy of the World Food Program was attacked near Goma in the eastern part of the country.


Ambassador Luca Attanasio “died immediately of his wounds,” AFP quoted a senior diplomatic source in Kinshasa.


The total number of casualties in the attack varies from 2 to 3 depending on the reporting source.


Media reports claim that militants tried to capture the diplomat but were not able to do this.
