Another Earthquake Hits Nepal
Nepal has been rocked by yet another powerful quake, leaving at least 42 people dead in the town Chautara, and more than 1,000 injured.
The quake measuring 7.3 in magnitude hit the remote region near the Chinese border, close to Mount Everest triggering landslides and causing buidlings in the region to collapse.
It comes just weeks after the devastating 7.9 magnitude quake which hit on the 25th of April, killing more than 8,000 people and injuring more than 17,000.
The quake sent people running from their homes in the Nepali capital of Kathmandu, still struggling in the aftermath of the April 24th quake and was felt as far away as New Delhi in India and in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka.
This latest quake was followed closely by at least six strong aftershocks, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
Rescue helicopters have been sent to the area.
