2 Children Die In Kenya Landslide; 41 Flood Deaths

April 17, 2013

By The Associated Press

NAIROBI, Kenya - Kenya's Red Cross says two children buried in a landslide overnight have died, as the country's death toll from heavy flooding rose to 41.

The Red Cross said Wednesday that the landslide in Narok County happened after a heavy downpour that destroyed houses and farms. The two children were buried alive while sleeping.

A search and rescue mission to find the children was hampered by impassable roads. The bodies were recovered in the afternoon.

Kenya's annual long rains have brought heavy flooding around the country, displacing thousands of people. The Red Cross says 41 people have died from floods in recent days.
