Death toll rises in new Nepal quake
AT least 42 people have been killed and more than 1,000 injured in the latest earthquake to hit Nepal.
It hit a remote mountain region, triggering landslides and toppling buildings less than three weeks after the country’s worst quake in 80 years.
Rescue helicopters were sent to districts north east of Kathmandu after the magnitude 7.3 quake.
More than 100 people were injured in landslides around the village of Chautara.
Chautara has become a hub for humanitarian aid after the 7.8-magnitude quake on April 25 that killed more than 8,000 people and injured 18,000 as it flattened villages and destroyed buildings.
It was Nepal’s worst quake since 1934.
