New earthquake causes dozens of dead in Nepal

The Nepal was shaken by a violent earthquake, for the second time in more than two weeks.

The earthquake of magnitude 7.3 on the Richter scale caused several dozen dead and over a thousand injured, amid the ruins of the earthquake of 25 April.

The quake, followed by eight aftershocks of magnitude 4 to 6, returned to cause the collapse of several houses in the capital, as well as several landslides in the remote areas of the country.

About two thousand people returned to the provisional camps in the suburbs of Katmandu, as a precautionary measure.

At least two dozen people died also in the northern regions of India, where they account for several dozen wounded.

The new concussion occurs at a time when Nepal tries to reorganize itself after the violent earthquake of April that caused more than 8 thousand dead and 17 thousand wounded.
