A statue of the Virgin Mary is all that remains of the St. Louis Catholic church Wednesday, March 7, 2012, after a series of deadly explosions at a munitions depot devastated adjacent residential neighborhoods, killing at least 246 people, in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo. More than three days have passed since the catastrophic explosion laid waste to a section of the Republic of Congo's capital, and officials confirmed that as of Wednesday no coordinated rescue effort had been launched, making it increasingly unlikely that any more people will be pulled alive from the flattened houses.
