Tourists wait for their flights outside Nepal's Tribhuvan International Airport a day after a 7.9 magnitude earthquake, in KathmanduBy Rupam Jain Nair and Ross Adkin BHAKTAPUR, Nepal (Reuters) - Thousands of Nepalis began fleeing the capital Kathmandu on Monday, terror-stricken by two days of powerful aftershocks and looming shortages of food and water after an earthquake that killed more than 3,700 people. Roads leading out of Kathmandu were jammed with people, some with babies in their arms, trying to climb onto buses or hitch a ride aboard cars and trucks to the plains. Huge queues had formed at the city's Tribhuvan International Airport, with tourists and residents desperate to get a flight out. "I'm willing even to sell the gold I'm wearing to buy a ticket, but there is nothing available," said Rama Bahadur, an Indian woman who works in Nepal's capital.

"I've said it from the beginning that I see no reason why these charges were filed against me," Fitschen told a news conference on Monday.
