Photos of the Day: April 4, 2012

Kenyan rescue workers carry the body of a man a victim of a massive boulder that crashed onto houses on April 4, 2012 in the Mathare slum of Nairobi, killing at least six people and trapping many underground after a night of heavy rains. The Red Cross said more than 40 houses were destroyed in the sprawling slums in the north of the capital when huge boulders came crashing onto them early on April 4. Teams of rescue workers used hoes and axes in an attempt to break up boulders that towered over their heads as crowds of onlookers stood perilously close.
