Death of colonel who inspired hope in Congo

In this photo taken on Friday, Jan. 3, 2014, a wooden coffin containing the body of Congolese Col. Mamadou Ndala as it is moved to a airstrip to be flown to Kinshasa, after he was killed during a ambush while on patrol, near Beni, Democratic Republic of Congo. Ndala had a reputation for being invincible: loyal soldiers claimed he had been shot up to 12 times. AP

In a place where death is never far away, the colonel seemed larger than life, invincible. He stood at well over 6 feet, a good head or two taller than the crowds that thronged around him, waving palms and chanting his name. His soldiers claimed he had survived being shot at a dozen times in the jungles of eastern Congo.
