On February 22, Italian ambassador Luca Attanasio was killed in the North Kivu province of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Italian paramilitary officer Vittorio Iacovacci, who was travelling with the ambassador, and their Congolese driver Moustapha Milambo were also killed in this attack. The murder of a foreign diplomat has drawn international attention to the turmoil in the DRC. However, the region regularly witnesses such incidents in which Congolese people lose their lives. Kambale Musavuli from the Centre for Research on the Congo talks about why the killings don’t stop in the DRC.
