If confirmed, the results suggest Iran's next parliament will be more supportive of Rouhani's drive for economic reforms, but conservatives will remain a powerful force and could limit the prospects for social change. Rouhani's allies made significant gains in that vote, held in February, ending conservative dominance of the 290-seat assembly.
By George Obulutsa NAIROBI (Reuters) - Rescue workers searched on Saturday for more residents feared trapped in the rubble of a six-storey building that collapsed in Nairobi after days of heavy rain, killing at least seven people.

It was not immediately clear how many people were trapped or killed under the building rubble in Nairobi's Huruma district, though the regional police chief said seven people were confirmed dead.
