Ambushed Nile expedition to be resumed

An historic expedition to track the course of the Nile, which was halted last week when a man was shot dead in an ambush in Uganda, is to continue. Steve Willis, of Kent, who came to the rafters' aid when they ran into trouble in Murchison Falls park where he ran a campsite, died when rebels shot at him. Three of the four-man team from Britain and New Zealand were also injured - one with a gunshot wound to the head. The team plan to continue the trip to re-measure the Nile's course next year.
