The UN has launched a 415 million dollar appeal for those affected by Nepal's earthquake, as frustration mounts at the pace of relief efforts.

The UN said it wanted to support government efforts to provide emergency relief over the next three months.

Riot police have clashed with people trying to leave the capital Kathmandu, and there are reports of villagers blocking trucks carrying supplies.

The government says it has been overwhelmed by the disaster.

Saturday's 7.8-magnitude quake killed more than 5,000 people and injured at least 10,000.
