More than 100 burnt to death in Kenya fire: reports

NAIROBI (Reuters) - More than 100 people were burned to death after a petrol fire broke out in a densely populated slum in the capital, local media said on Monday.

Local television channels aired images of smoldering skeletons as the fire raged through the slum. Badly burned slum dwellers staggered in a daze, skin peeling off their faces and arms.
