Nepal is set to reopen all the heritage sites in the Kathmandu valley to the public, in a bid to attract tourists after April's devastating earthquake.

Among those sites set to open are the historic Durbar squares or "noble courts", which were badly damaged.

Unesco raised some concerns over the safety of reopening the sites.

But media reports cite officials as saying the necessary measures are in place.

More than 8,000 people were killed and the destruction was widespread.
