Cries heard as rescuers search rubble of Nairobi building, at least 10 dead

NAIROBI- Rescue workers raced on Saturday to save more residents from the rubble of a six-storey building in Nairobi – including a mother and baby whose cries could be heard – after it collapsed overnight following heavy rain. Ten people were confirmed dead. President Uhuru Kenyatta visited the site of Friday night’s disaster and ordered the arrest of the owners. “We are still hearing some voices from the collapsed building,” Kenya National Disaster Operation Centre director Colonel Nathan Kigotho, told reporters at the scene. “We don’t have the exact number of people buried in the rubble.”
