Several feared trapped in Nairobi collapsed building

Rescue workers are searching for at least 10 people, mostly construction workers, feared trapped in the rubble of a collapsed building in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi.

The seven-storey building was still under construction when it came down on Tuesday afternoon in Kasarani area, on the outskirts of the city.

A supervisor in charge of the site twice ignored warnings from authorities to stop construction works following concerns over its stability, the Nation news site reports.

The collapse of buildings under construction is uncommon in the city.

Emergency teams were on Wednesday morning still on the site, with heavy machinery moving concrete slabs as rescuers tried to locate those buried in the rubble.
