Around 200 people have been killed and many more injured in a series of explosions in Brazzaville, the capital of Congo Republic, according to a senior official in the presidency, citing hospital sources. Witnesses and state media said the blast occurred during a fire in the arms depot in the Regiment Blinde base in the riverside Mpila neighborhood. The explosions were so strong that it affected even Kinshasa, the capital of neighboring country DR Congo, across the river from Brazzaville.
