Brazzaville munitions dump blasts 'kill scores' in Congo

At least 150 people are reported to have been killed following huge explosions at an arms dump in Congo's capital Brazzaville.

The force of the blasts was felt several miles away in the city of Kinshasa, across the border in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Hundreds more people are reported to have been injured in the explosions.

The BBC's Thomas Hubert, in Kinshasa, says residents of east Brazzaville fled when the blasts began.
