2nd Major Earthquake Hits Nepal


A major earthquake has struck western Nepal, two weeks after a devastating quake killed more than 7,000 people.

An earthquake, 7.4 in magnitude and only 19km deep, has hit 68km west of Namche Bazar, Nepal, according to US Geological Survey.

It comes just a few weeks after a devastating 7.8-magnitude quake left over 7,000 people killed, and almost 18,000 injured.

Around 8 million people in Nepal, which has a total population of 28 million, have been affected by the disaster, the UN estimated.

Some 2 million people still need tents, drinking water, food and medicine.
