NGO Condemns Death Threats Against its Staff

A NGO condemns ‘death threats’ against two of its staff fighting oil exploration in a Democratic Republic of Congo nature park

The World Wildlife Fund has condemned ‘death threats’ against two of its staff fighting oil exploration in a Democratic Republic of Congo nature park just weeks after the park's director was shot.
 
In a press statement, the organisation points out that, “Unidentified callers have threatened the personal safety of two employees working in the city of Goma."
 
It says the staff have been involved in efforts to block oil exploration by a United Kingdom company, Soco International PLC, in nearby Virunga National Park, an 800 000-hectare nature reserve that is among the oldest in Africa and home to rare and endangered mountain gorillas.
