Six-storey building collapses as floods hit Kenyan capital

NAIROBI- A six-storey building collapsed in Kenya’s capital late on Friday, killing at least three people, KTN television reported, and trapping many others after days of heavy rains and floods. Live footage showed rescuers bringing out two survivors through packed crowds of emergency crews and onlookers in the Huruma residential area in northeast Nairobi. Three children and one adult were taken to the city’s Kenyatta National Hospital, Kenya Red Cross said on its Twitter feed. People from about 150 households were taking shelter in a nearby village, the aid group said, amid what it called “chaotic scenes”.
