Over 3,000 people are now known to have died in a massive earthquake which hit Nepal on Saturday.

Rescue efforts in Nepal are continuing after a deadly earthquake killed more than 3,000 people, making it the country’s worst earthquake disaster in over 80 years. A powerful aftershock triggered more avalanches in the Everest region, where at least 17 people have been killed and an unknown number, including several Britons, are still missing. Response teams and medical supplies have begun arriving in the country. The death toll from the Nepal earthquake has now reached 3,617, the Associated Press reported, citing police.
