Rescuers search Kenya train crash wreckage

Rescuers are continuing to search the wreckage of a cargo train bound for Uganda, which derailed and crashed into houses in Nairobi's Kibera shanty town.

The Kenyan Red Cross confirmed its workers had rescued seven people and referred them to Nairobi's Kenyatta National Hospital.

Kibera is Kenya's largest slum and houses are made of corrugated iron sheet and built precariously close to the railway line.
