At least fifteen persons have died and 70 injured after a fire swept through a market and nearby homes in central Nairobi.
The blaze, which started in the early hours of the morning, broke out in a timber yard and spread through Gikomba market.
Some victims were taken to Kenyatta National Hospital whilst a 15th fatality was at Mama Lucy Hospital.
Gikomba is the heartbeat of a huge informal market, selling everything from second-hand clothes to hardware. It has been damaged several times by fire.
