EXPLOSION

Huge Blast at Arms Dump in Congo

A munitions dump in the Congo’s capital, Brazzaville, exploded Sunday, and the huge blast killed at least 200 people. The explosion could be seen—and even felt—miles away in Kinshasa, across the border in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Some 1,500 people could be injured, many of them seriously. The explosion may have been caused by a fire in the arms depot, according to the country’s defense minister.
