The journalist, who was embedded with the DRC army during their offensive against the rebels, was shot while sitting with two colleagues in a military supply vehicle which came under attack. He was fatally injured and died later of his wounds. The other journalists were also injured but their life was not thought to be in danger, the AFP added, quoting the DRC Minister of Information and government’s spokesperson, Lambert Mende.
