tremblement Bukavu/Rwanda update 3

Radio Okapi says that over 80% of Bukavu's residents slept under the stars last night, in fear of another earthquake. Sources also tell them that 100 homes in Ibanda commune (the western part of Bukavu) were destroyed, and that the earthquake affected some of the major structures in Bukavu, including College Alfajiri, the Hotel Residence, and the old post office.

Rumor has it that the deaths in Bukavu were caused by the collapse of a market. It sounds like things are a mess.

Here's another firsthand account of what happened, in English.
