Kenya: At least 15 dead and 70 injured in Nairobi marketplace blaze

Flames consumed Nairobi's Gikomba open-air market in the early hours of Thursday, killing at least 15 and injuring more than 70. Rescuers and emergency teams were seen searching through burnt debris, while some victims were thought to be trapped in a nearby flat. Four children were among victims who had either burnt or suffocated on toxic fumes. «My sister is in a car coming, not knowing... Еще that her child is dead,» said Betty Kaveke who had lost her own small child in fire. The marketplace has been falling victim to recurrent fires, raising fears that it could have been the target of an arson attack.
