Slideshow - Nepal Earthquake

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on 25 April. Authorities report well over 3,000 people have been killed and many buildings have collapsed in the capital, Kathmandu. As search and rescue efforts continue, hospitals in the capital continue to function but are stretched to the limit. Powerful aftershocks continue to be felt, so further damage is a risk, increasing the climate of fear amongst the local population.
