Blinde munitions depot and surrounding IDP camps
in the Mpila district of Brazzaville, Congo. A
distance buffer of 1km from the center of the blast
zone has been placed for reference, and to highlight
the thousands of residential buildings in the
immediate vicinity that have likely been severely
impacted by this disaster. This is a preliminary
analysis & has not yet been validated in the field.
