Kenya fire: ‘Parents search for children’

Distraught parents have been going from ward to ward at the main hospital in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, to find their children, following the fire which raged through a market in the city, AFP news agency reports.

Betty Kaveke was looking for her three missing children at the Kenyatta National Hospital.

“I have only found one, aged 14, the rest are nowhere to be seen and the house is destroyed,” she was quoted as saying.

At least 15 people were killed and 70 wounded after a blaze ripped through Gikomba market, one of the largest in Nairobi.
