KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — The death toll from Nepal's earthquake soared past 3,700 Monday, and how much higher it would rise depended largely on the condition of vulnerable mountain villages that rescue workers were still struggling to reach two days after the disaster.
Tens of thousands of frightened Nepalese huddled in tent cities Monday, desperate for help after a quake that killed more than 3,500 people, as international rescue teams with sniffer dogs raced to find survivors buried in the rubble. Teams equipped with heavy cutting gear and relief supplies were landing round the clock at the nation's only international airport, on the outskirts of Kathmandu which has been devastated by Saturday's 7.8 magnitude quake. Officials say more than 3,500 people are now known to have died, including 3,432 in Nepal -- making it the quake-prone Himalayan nation's deadliest disaster in more than 80 years. More than 90 people have been killed in neighbouring India and China while a further 6,509 people were injured in Nepal.
