Nepal Earthquake Death Toll Tops 2,500: Report

The death toll from Saturday's earthquake in Nepal has topped 2,500 and may continue to rise as more areas are searched, The Associated Press reported. Local authorities said Sunday that at least 2,430 people in the country had died alone, according to the AP. They added that 61 people died in India and a few in other neighboring countries, and the Nepal Mountaineering Association said 18 bodies were recovered from Mount Everest. A major aftershock also hit the Kathmandu area of Nepal on Sunday, terrifying locals as rescuers dug for survivors of the devastating earthquake. The aftershock struck as aid had started to arrive in the impoverished mountain nation, with Indian military planes shipping 200 rescuers and 43 tons of food and emergency supplies. "Our people on the ground have found the overall situation to have been worse than their worst fears," said Save the Children, one of the many aid groups sending emergency teams to Nepal. Read »
