Three people died and thirteen were injured when a three-storey building collapsed in the Kenyan capital Nairobi. According to police sources, two people died while receiving treatment at a Nairobi hospital and a woman died at the scene after she was crushed by a slab.

The disaster came barely a week after the Kenya Architectural Association said in a report that 65 percent of structures in the country are substandard. Corrupt planning officials, substandard materials and poor workmanship are often to blame in such situations.
