Democratic Republic of Congo, condolences for the killing of the Italian ambassador Luca Attanasio in the attack on a WFP convoy.

 

 

INTERSOS expresses pain and heartfelt condolences for the killing of the Italian ambassador to the Democratic Republic of Congo Luca Attanasio, Vittorio Iacovacci and their driver in the attack on a World Food Programme convoy.

A news that affects all of us in INTERSOS, given our presence for many years in the area where the accident occurred, and which leads us to reiterate once again the concern and our condemnation of the repetition of attacks that undermine directly and indirectly the effective organization of humanitarian work. We are close to the families of our fellow countrymen and we have directly expressed our condolences to the Foreign Ministry and the Italian Embassy in Kinshasa.
