KINSHASA, Congo (AP) — A local official says five Congo park rangers have been found dead and an American journalist has been found in good condition in the Okapi Wildlife Reserve after going missing during a militia attack.

Mambasa territory administrator Alfred Bongwalanga told The Associated Press on Sunday the journalist hid in the forest after the Friday attack in northeast Congo. He said she was found by the army, who called in her rescue. He did not have her name or other details.

At least 10 people were missing after the attack outside the town of Mambasa but six of them, all Congolese rangers, were later found alive. Two British journalists and five other park rangers escaped during the attack.

A human rights group has blamed the attacks on the Mai Mai SIMBA militia.
