A huge fire has broken out at the main international airport in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.

The Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) said Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) had been closed and passengers evacuated.

Cabinet secretary for transport Michael Kamau said the fire was ?very severe? and urged people to stay away from the airport.

The interior ministry tweeted that an evacuation of the entire airport was under way, with only essential personnel remaining.

There have been no reports of any casualties and the cause of the fire is not clear.
