Death toll from Kenya landslides surges to 60

Heavy rains triggered a landslide which hit Kenya’s West Pokot county in the northwest on Sunday, causing at least 60 people to die.
But with bridges and roads swept away, rescuers are struggling to reach all of the affected villages and are unsure how many people are missing.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has mobilised the armed forces and local officials say they are in desperate need of medicines, clothes and blankets.
