7 kids die in Kenya building

NAIROBI: A part of a school building collapsed in the Kenyan capital Nairobi, killing seven children and injuring dozens more, Kenya Red Cross spokesman Peter Abwao said. Students were in their classroom at the Precious Talent Academy when the collapse occurred Monday morning, Kenya Red Cross said on Twitter. So far, 57 injured children had been transported to the hospital, Abwao said. Emergency responders are still clearing the rubble to determine if there are more children trapped underneath.
