28 Apr, 2015

The death count in the the Nepal earthquake has risen to 4,010 reported dead and 7,598 reported injured, however the Nepalese government speculates that the death toll may rise to over 10,000 dead over the coming days. Areas near Kathmandu are starting to return to a state of near normality with a return of some basic infrastructure but many rural areas are still cut off from basic necessities such as water, shelter and power. Prime Minister Sushil Koirala says that despite the influx of aid,

getting help to some of the worst affected areas is a major challenge.
