Okapis and conservationists killed by DRC rebels

The okapi is only found in Democratic Republic of Congo and it is under threat.

A conservation station dedicated to these animals has been attacked - at least five people and 14 okapis were killed.

Eyewitnesses said a local rebel group, known as Mai Mai Morgan was responsible.
