A massive earthquake killed more than 1,200 people Saturday as it tore through large parts of Nepal, toppling office blocks and towers in Kathmandu and triggering a deadly avalanche at Everest base camp. Officials said at least 1,170 people are known to have died in Nepal, making it the quake-prone Himalayan nation's worst disaster in more than 80 years. "The death toll has reached 1,170," Nepal police spokesman Kamal Singh Bam told AFP, adding that rescue efforts were still underway. Offers of help poured in from governments around the world, with the United States and the European Union announcing they were sending in disaster response teams.
Fernandinho volleyed in a dramatic 89th-minute winner as Manchester City edged FA Cup finalists Aston Villa 3-2 on Saturday to reclaim second place in the Premier League table. A calamitous miskick by Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan allowed Sergio Aguero to put City ahead in the third minute and Aleksandar Kolarov extended the hosts' lead with a 66th-minute free-kick. Villa hit back through Tom Cleverley and Carlos Sanchez, both of whom punished errors by City goalkeeper Joe Hart, only for Fernandinho to claim victory with a back-post finish from Kolarov's left-wing corner.
