Child survives Kenya building collapse

A one-and-a-half-year-old child has been rescued from the debris of a building that collapsed four days ago in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.

The Kenya Red Cross says the baby girl was found in the rubble at 04:00 local time (01:00 GMT) and was rushed to hospital for treatment.

The six-storey residence came down in heavy rain on Friday, killing at least 22 people.

Dozens of others are still thought to be buried under the rubble, but hopes of finding more alive are fading.

The owner of the building earmarked for demolition, Samuel Kamau,  will appear in court, charged with manslaughter.

Mr. Kamau was arrested on Monday. Officials say he did not have permission to rent out the 119 rooms in the six-storey building.

Mr Kamau has not yet commented on the allegation.

Report says about 135 people have been freed so far from the collapsed building.

More bodies were retrieved overnight.
