An official from the National Emergency Operations Centre said today, that the death toll in Nepal from last weekend's devastating earthquake, has risen to 7,040.

More than 14,000 other people were injured in the 7.8-magnitude quake that hit the Himalayan nation on April 25th, but the figure is likely to rise.

More than 100 people in neighbouring India and China also died in the quake.

The focus has shifted from searching through the rubble for survivors to providing much-needed aid to those stranded in far-flung areas of the impoverished nation.
