Kenya's new Chinese-built rail line will cut through the capital's sprawling sanctuary for lions, giraffes and zebras, wildlife officials said Friday, replacing the colonial-era railway known as the "Lunatic Express".Kenya's game parks and abundant wildlife draw tourists from across the globe but the government has said that must not stop the east African nation from building infrastructure to speed up development in a country where poverty remains rife.Under an agreement struck between wildlife officials and Kenya's government, the rail line will not alter the boundaries of the 117 sq km (45 sq mile) Nairobi National Park. The old line does not cut through Nairobi's game park but it does pierce the Tsavo National Park.
