A Congolese journalist who had been raising awareness about the Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo has been killed at his home, APA reports citing BBC.
The army said unidentified attackers raided Papy Mumbere Mahamba's home in Lwebma, in the north-eastern province of Ituri, killing him, wounding his wife and burning their house down.
DR Congo is experiencing the world's second-worst Ebola epidemic on record.
People working to stop the virus are often targets of attacks.
Mahamba's murder is likely to have been fuelled by deep suspicion of the Ebola virus and mistrust of those who are working to stop it, the BBC World Service's Africa editor Will Ross says.
