Mass funeral for Congo arms depot blast victims

A mass funeral has been held for victims of a huge explosion that ripped through the Republic of Congo's capital a week earlier.

At least 240 people were killed when an arms depot in a densely populated part of Brazzaville went up in flames.

Thousands of people, including Congo's President Denis Sassou, attended Sunday's funeral and memorial service.
