Militia Attack Park Station, Kill Ranger

News out of Dakar, Senegal reports that militiamen attacked a national park station in the eastern Congo. They killed one ranger and wounded another in the government controlled sector in the far north of Virunga National Park. This was reported by officials on Saturday.

The assault took place north of Lake edward around Mount Tshiaberiu, a region home to a critically endangered population of 18 eastern lowland gorillas. No reason was given for the attack. I wonder what they expected to gain?
