to urge calm in Brazzaville and

"The explosions that you have
heard don't mean there is a war or
a coup d'etat," he said. "Nor does
it mean there was a mutiny. It is
an incident caused by a fire at the
munitions depot."
Didier Boutsindi, an official
in the president's office, said the
explosion woke him "with the
force of an earthquake." Doors in
his house, located several miles
(kilometers) away from the epi-
center of the blast, were thrown
open and several windows
cracked. He began making calls,
and when he realized the origin
of the explosion, his first thought
was his uncle, whose home is
located just next to the depot.
"The house fell completely,"
Boutsindi said. "He was sleep-
ing. His wife was at church. His
children - small children - were
playing outside," he said. "The
neighbors dug out the body and
brought him to the morgue."
