BBC: DR Congo’s Gungu museum: Thousands of artefacts destroyed in fire. “Thousands of historic artefacts have been destroyed in the Congolese town of Gungu after a private museum burnt to ashes. The objects at the National Museum of Gungu represent one of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s most important collections, says the BBC’s Emery Makumeno in the capital, Kinshasa. At least 8,000 or 9,000 items dating back to the end of the 18th Century were ruined.”
