Brazzaville

7 Mar
This Friday marks exactly 10 years since a deadly series of blasts at an arms depot in Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of Congo. Some 300 people were killed and more than 2,500 injured in the explosions, which also destroyed thousands of homes, leaving 17,000 families needing shelter. A decade on, memories of the tragedy are still fresh, as victims continue to wait for compensation and government support. FRANCE 24's Clement Bonnerot and Rosie Pioth report.
