More than 100 dead in Kenyan pipeline fire

More than 100 people burned to death when a fuel pipeline burst into flames in a slum area in the Kenyan capital, police said on Monday. -- PHOTO: REUTERS NAIROBI (AFP) - More than 100 people burned to death when a fuel pipeline burst into flames in a slum area in the Kenyan capital, police said on Monday. 'We are putting the number of dead at over 100, we are waiting for body bags to put the victims into,' said Thomas Atuti, area police commander. The explosion happened in Nairobi's Lunga Lunga industrial area, which is surrounded by the densely packed tin-shack housing of the Sinai slum. 'There had been a leak in the fuel pipeline earlier, and people were going to collect the fuel that was coming out,' said Joseph Mwego, a resident.
