A memorial service is under way in Kenya's capital, Nairobi, for nine students who died on September 2nd in a fire that broke out at their dormitory in Moi Girls High School.

A local TV station covered the event.

A 14-year-old schoolgirl was charged on Wednesday with multiple counts of murder after being accused of starting the fire.

The girl denied starting the fire, the AFP news agency quoted a source in court as saying.

The case was held in camera at the High Court in Nairobi because she is a minor.

The nine girls who died were burnt beyond recognition, and were identified through DNA analysis, AFP reported.
