A cargo train transporting wheat has derailed at Makupa causeway near Kibarani in Mombasa County.
Police are having a hard time controlling locals who are looting the wheat using canoes.
At some point, police were forced to shoot in the air to disperse the surging crowd.
A rescue engine is at the scene but the locals can’t hear none of it.
