Six rangers at a prominent national park in Congo are dead and another was badly injured in a horrific ambush carried out Sunday by "armed assailants", park officials announced.
"Virunga National Park deeply regrets the tragic loss of life among its Rangers, who work tirelessly and with dedication to protect both the Park and the neighbouring communities from the tyranny of armed groups".
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, though past attacks on Virunga park rangers have been blamed on several armed groups that vie for control of eastern Congo's natural resources.
"Their sacrifice will not be forgotten nor be in vain".
A ranger who was seriously wounded in the attack was evacuated to hospital in the city of Goma and his injuries were no longer considered life-threatening, the statement added.
"The Rangers of the Congolese Institute for the Conservation of Nature are agents of the Congolese State".
