(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 24 – Late Italian ambassador to the
Democratic Republic of Congo Luca Attanasio and his police
escort Vito Iacovacci were killed in an attempted kidnapping
that tragically ended in a firefight and were not executed by
their captors, according to an autopsy on Wednesday.
    The pair, along with their World Food Programme Congolese driver Mustapha Milambo, were attacked on the way to inspect a WFP
school feeding scheme in North Kivu.
    The DRC government has blamed the attack on Rwandan Hutu rebels,
who have said Congo and Rwanda troops are to blame.
    It had previously been reported that Attanasio and Iacovacci had
been taken into the forest by their kidnappers who then executed
them. (ANSA).
