Gun attack at Congo mine kills 3 Chinese nationals – Reuters

Three Chinese nationals were killed in a gun attack at a mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Reuters reported April 6, citing Xinhua, China's official news agency.

The report did not identify the mine or its owner but said the attack happened in the northeastern province of Ituri, far from the country's copper-cobalt producing region in the Southwest.

The newswire mentioned that Canadian gold miner Banro Corp. suspended operations in Congo in 2019 due to rebel attacks.

The Chinese embassy urged the Congolese government to "take effective measures to protect the lives and property of Chinese citizens" and to speed up the investigation into the attack. The embassy had also repeatedly advised its citizens against traveling to Ituri due to armed groups in the province, according to the report.
