A teenage boy has been rescued after surviving for five days in the rubble of a building, following the earthquake that killed some 5,500 people in Nepal.

A huge crowd cheered as rescuers brought the boy out of the rubble in the capital, Kathmandu. The boy has now been taken to a field hospital.

In Kathmandu, rescue workers from Nepal and the US worked for hours to free the boy from the rubble of the building.

The boy, identified as Pemba Lama, eventually emerged blinking into the sunlight.

Reports state that the boy had survived by drinking water from wet clothes and eating from pots of clarified butter.

Meanwhile, climbing is expected to resume next week on Mount Everest, where avalanches triggered by the earthquake killed 18 people.
