The tremor also unleashed avalanches on Mount Everest, which killed at least 17 people and injured 61 others.

Efforts to dig victims out from under the rubble of collapsed buildings in Kathmandu have been continuing.

Rescue missions and aid have started arriving to help cope with the aftermath of the worst earthquake to hit Nepal for more than 80 years.

Meanwhile, the death toll In Bihar India yesterday, rose to 51 with a powerful tremor hitting the State again in the afternoon creating panic among residents.
