Everything is 'under control'

Posted by republicofcongo25 on March 12, 2012 at 6:00 AM

The arms depot fire that raged for two days in the  Brazzaville is now under control, officials say.

 

The blaze has claimed some 200 lives, with many more people feared buried under the rubble.

 

Rescuers say it is still too dangerous to go in because of unexploded weapons.

 

There are fears that 'hundreds' of bodies could be buried. Brazzaville's hospitals are struggling to cope with the injured

The Red Cross admitted that it was still not able to begin search and rescue operations because of the number of shells and rockets littered around the site.

 

At least 5,000 people are also thought to have been made homeless by Sunday's explosions, which hit the densely populated eastern suburb of Mpili in Brazzaville.
