Congo blast site still too unsafe for rescue attempt

The area where ammunitions stockpiles exploded in Congo's capital, Brazzaville, is still too unsafe to enter according to rescue workers.

A BBC reporter in the city says there are fears that hundreds of bodies could be buried in the rubble of buildings.

There are also concerns that unexploded shells scattered by the blast's force could pose a further risk.

The blast killed over 200 people and injured an estimated 1,500. Hundreds are believed to still be buried in the rubble.
