DRC: Death of the Italian Ambassador to the East of the Country



The Italian Ambassador stationed in Kinshasa, Luca Anattasio, who was shot and wounded in an ambush by rebels on a Convoy of the World Food Programme (WFP) on Monday 22 February 2021 in North Kivu, has just succumbed to his wounds. The attack took place in Nyiragongo territory, a few kilometres from the town of Goma, the capital of North Kivu province.

Also in the same attack, his bodyguards and his driver were all also killed.

In a video message the Congolese government through the Congolese Foreign Minister promises to do everything possible to discover the perpetrators of this attack.

"I promise the Italian government that the government of my country will do everything possible to find out who is behind this despicable murder," said the Congolese Foreign Minister, in a message of condolences.
