Chaos as huge fire guts Nairobi airport
NAIROBI (AFP) - A devastating fire shut down Nairobi's international airport for much of Wednesday in a "major crisis" that forced the cancellation or diversion of scores of flights at east Africa's biggest transport hub.
The first international flights by Kenya's national carrier will land early Thursday in Nairobi, officials said, with immigration formalities and baggage processed through what is normally the domestic terminal as international arrivals were gutted in the four-hour blaze.
Cargo and domestic flights out of Nairobi resumed early Wednesday evening.
It was not clear whether other airlines would also land as early as Thursday.
