Death toll in Kenyan church fire rises to 30

The death toll after a mob set fire to a church in Kenya has risen to thirty.

The villagers, including children had been sheltering from rioting sparked by a disputed election.

The massacre happened in Eldoret, some 185 miles from the capital, Nairobi.

It's feared up to 265 people have been killed in three days of clashes with armed police following the re-election of President Mwai Kibaki.

Police are calling the attack savage.
