At least five people were killed and several others were missing after an informal gold mine collapsed in northern Kenya, officials and local media said.

The bodies of five miners have been recovered from the Hillo artisanal mine, and another three people were unaccounted for, regional commissioner Paul Rotich told Reuters by telephone late on Friday.

"Reports from rescuers, police and our chiefs suggest at (least) eight casual miners were inside the mining ground when the walls collapsed and buried them alive," Rotich said

Two injured miners were taken to hospital, Kenyan broadcaster NTV reported on Saturday morning.
"The place caved in because of the rains," Marsabit county commissioner David Saruni told NTV.
