At least 14 pupils have been killed in a stampede at a primary school in western Kenya
The crush happened at kakamega primary school, north-west of the Capital Nairobi, on Monday afternoon.
Reports say children were leaving classes for home at about 14:00 GMT when the stampede took place.
Education minister George Magoha confirmed the 14 deaths to local media.
Nearly 40 other students were injured – some critically – and taken to hospital, reports say. Some of them were released after receiving treatment.
In September last year eight pupils died and 69 were injured when a classroom collapsed at a primary school in Nairobi.
