Blast at Brazzaville arms depot kills hundreds

Up to 200 people were killed on Sunday when an arms dump exploded in Brazzaville, ripping apart a nearby neighbourhood in the Congo Republic's capital. Hundreds of others were injured by the blasts which rocked the riverside capital around 8 a.m. (0700 GMT).

A government spokesman said that a short circuit was to blame for the fire that sparked the explosions and promised to move military barracks out of town as a result.
