They were taken while visiting the Virunga National Park, a renowned gorilla sanctuary in the east of the African country.
Two British citizens have been kidnapped in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Foreign Office has confirmed.
The pair are believed to have been visiting the Virunga National Park, a gorilla sanctuary in the east of the African country, when they were abducted on Friday.
The Britons were among a group of people taken hostage, according to a spokesperson for the Congolese Institute for Nature Conservation (ICCN).
A female park ranger travelling with them was killed and their driver was also abducted, a park spokesman said.
Their vehicle was ambushed while bringing the tourists from Kibumba to the city of Goma, Joel Wengamulay, ICCN spokesman told the UN-backed Radio Okapi.
“For the moment the (ICCN) cannot communicate much about the incident because the hostages are still in captivity. That would put their lives in danger,” he said, adding that investigations have begun into the attack.
