Two British hostages, driver, released in Congo

A group of tourist rangers and carriers inside the tropical jungle

Bethan Davies and Robert Jesty were among three people abducted by unidentified armed men while visiting Virunga National Park, a renowned gorilla sanctuary in the east of the country.

"I have received information that the two British tourists have been released".

We are extremely relieved that the release has happened, they are now on their way home to their families, which is obviously what we were all hoping for.

The park ranger who died while protecting British tourists from kidnappers in the Democratic Republic of Congo has been named as Rachel Masika Baraka. The kidnapping took place near the village of Kibati, which is located just north of Goma - the capital city of eastern DRC's troubled North Kivu province, one of the most volatile parts of the country.

"She was one of the Park's 26 female rangers and was highly committed, showing true bravery in her work", he said.

Eastern Congo has seen successive waves of violence over the past quarter century and was at the epicentre of two wars between 1996 and 2003 that killed millions, mainly through hunger and disease.

Park director, Emmanuel de Merode, said the young ranger's life had been "tragically cut short in service to Virunga National Park".

It has nevertheless attracted a growing number of visitors keen to visit its endangered mountain gorillas and the active Nyiragongo volcano.

Boris Johnson didn't offer any further details in the statement released Sunday, but paid tribute to the authorities from the African country and the Congolese Institute for Nature Conservation "for their tireless help during this bad case".
