Scores killed in Nairobi fire

Gas leak caused deadly blaze in Kenyan slum


 

At least 120 people were killed in Kenya after gas spilled into a sewer and ignited underneath a densely-packed slum. Local media say the toll will likely be much higher, and the disaster which was probably sparked by a discarded cigarette. Residents told Reuters the fuel spilled from a depot owned by the Kenya Pipeline Company, where the slum’s residents often siphon fuel from.
