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. President Uhuru Kenyatta visited the site of the building in a poor Nairobi suburb, his spokesman said. 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.
For a few hours on Friday, the White House became the Blues House. Musicians including Herbie Hancock, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Aretha Franklin and Hugh Masekela joined US President Barack Obama for a special concert to celebrate International Jazz Day. "Perhaps more than any other form of art, jazz is driven by an unmistakably American spirit," Obama said, noting that the genre was shaped in the melting-pot southern city of New Orleans.
