A massive fire shut down Nairobi's international airport on Wednesday with flights diverted to regional cities as firefighters battled to put out the blaze in east Africa's biggest transport hub. Dramatic plumes of black smoke billowed out of the main arrivals terminal, but by 9.00 am (0600GMT), some four hours after the blaze broke out, firefighters had succeeded in stemming the raging flames.
