Just another update from National Geographic News.

"Conservationists believe last month's execution of four mountain gorillas inside the park was carried out by people associated with the charcoal trade who want the park unprotected."

"... rangers announced on their blog that one more gorilla has been found dead as a result of the July attack; her infant is still missing and presumed dead, bringing the total to six."

I encourage everyone who is interested to read the full story and the blogs that are mentioned:

I've just read this on the bbc news website (Africa section). I haven't posted a link as I think it's too long. It is so sad.
