Italy’s ambassador to the Democratic Republic of Congo, DR Congo, was killed on Monday during a fact-finding mission to the country’s troubled east, a senior diplomat said.

The envoy, Luca Attanasio, “died of his wounds” after a convoy of the UN’s World Food Programme (WFP) came under fire near Goma, the source said in Kinshasa.
