“The children here were all running away and crying,” said local resident Michael Otieno.

More than 800 students are enrolled at the school, officials said.

One survivor, 10-year-old Tracy Oduor, told The Associated Press: “We were in class reading and we heard pupils and teachers screaming, and the class started collapsing and then a stone hit me on the mouth.

“When we got out of the gate we heard that pupils were dead. I feel so sad.”
