About 15 people are missing after a seven-story building collapsed in a residential area of the Kenyan capital Nairobi, rescue services said on Tuesday.

The Kenya Red Cross said on its Twitter feed that the building had collapsed in an eastern Nairobi suburb, while Saint John's Ambulance said 15 people were reported missing.

Thanks The incident occurred on Monday night, both rescue services said.

The East African nation has seen similar tragedies in the past. A total of 49 people died mid-last year when another building collapsed during a heavy, nighttime downpour in a poor neighborhood.
