Train derails in one of Africa's largest slums

Rescue operations are continuing in Nairobi after a cargo train derailed in one of Africa’s largest slums.

The 22 wagons were carrying wheat from the Kenyan port of Mombasa to Uganda when the accident happened in what were described by police as slippery conditions. It is believed the train crashed into structures close to the line.

Ten people have been injured and no deaths have been reported.

Authorities in Nairobi have often accused residents of the Kibera slum putting up structures very close to the rail line.

Some buildings and walls have had to be pulled down to make way for a crane required to move the derailed train.
