Aftershocks from Saturday's devastating earthquake are still shaking Kathmandu, and while more aid is starting to arrive, a lot of people are trying their best to get out of the Nepalese capital. Roads out of the city are jammed, and for a second night, hundreds of thousands of people spent last night sleeping in the open or in basic tents, either because their homes had been destroyed or because they were too afraid to spend the night inside, Reuters reports. The city is already experiencing shortages of food and water, and overwhelmed health workers fear that disease is likely to spread in the aftermath of the disaster. In other developments:
- Officials say the death toll now stands at more than 3,700, but aid workers warn that the scale of the disaster is still unknown and many thousands more could have died in remote villages that are hard to access even in good conditions, reports the AP.
