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-story building was still under construction when it came down on Tuesday afternoon in the Kasarani area, on the outskirts of the city.
According to reports, a supervisor in charge of the site twice ignored warnings from authorities to stop construction works following concerns over its stability.
Meanwhile, as at the time of filing this report, emergency teams were still on site, with heavy machinery moving concrete slabs as rescuers tried to locate those buried in the rubble.
