The Virunga National Park gorillas who enjoy posing for a selfie

A photo posted by a Congolese ranger showing him with two posing gorillas in the Virunga National Park, has gone viral online. What's special about this photo is that the gorillas in the background are not just in the frame but seem to actually be posing for the camera. There's a lovely but sad little story behind the picture. BBC Newsday's Lawrence Pollard spoke to Innocent Mburanumwe, the Deputy Director of the Virunga National Park.
