At least 68 people have been killed and 1,261 were injured in the major earthquake which struck eastern Nepal, near Mount Everest, two weeks after more than 8,000 people died in a devastating quake.

17 have also died in India, as well as a woman in Tibet, which is part of China, was also killed when falling rocks hit her car as it travelled through Gyirong.

32 of the Asian nation's 75 districts were affected.

Meanwhile, A U.S. military helicopter "was declared missing" on Tuesday while in Nepal, to support earthquake relief efforts there.
 
The UH-1 Huey helicopter had six U.S. Marines and two Nepalese aboard at the time.

Radio transmissions indicated its crew was having some type of fuel problem before it went missing, said Warren, who added the U.S. government is "hopeful" the aircraft didn't crash but doesn't know.
