NEPAL KATMANDU EARTHQUAKE RESCUE

NEPAL KATMANDU EARTHQUAKE RESCUE

Rescuers search in the debris of collapsed buildings after the 8.1-magnitude earthquake in Katmandu, Nepal, 28 April 2015. People stranded in remote villages and towns across Nepal were still waiting for aid and relief to arrive on Tuesday (28 April 2015), four days after a devastating earthquake destroyed buildings and roads and killed more than 4,600 people. The government has yet to assess the full scale of the damage wrought by Saturday's 8.1 magnitude quake, unable to reach many mountainous areas despite aid supplies and personnel pouring in from around the world. Prime Minister Sushil Koirala said the death toll could reach 10,000, as information on damage from far-flung villages and towns has yet to come in. That would surpass the 8,500 who died in a 1934 earthquake, the last disaster on this scale to hit the Himalayan nation.(Imaginechina via AP Images)
