Virunga National Park Suspends Tourist activities

Authorities at Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo have suspended tourist activities following the kidnap of British tourists by suspected militias.

The suspension is in place until 4 June.

Last Friday two British tourists were kidnapped by armed men while they were heading to the city of Goma.

“Tourism is suspended until June 4 for reasons of investigation but also strengthening security measures. [During this period] the regal activities and patrols continue “, said Joel Wengamulay, director of communication of Virunga park.

The two British subjects were released Sunday in the afternoon. A park warden (Rachel Katumwa) was killed and another one wounded in the attack on the vehicle carrying Western tourists.
