Nepal quake death toll climbs to more than 3200

Chinese rescuers emerge from a collapsed building in Kathmandu carrying a man on a stretcher.

He’s alive and in stable condition, but more than 3200 others were killed in Saturday’s earthquake, some 6500 have been injured.

Bad weather and aftershocks have made it all but impossible for aid teams to get here.

People are doing their best to cope without basic necessities.

(SOUNDBITE) (Nepali) 30-YEAR-OLD KATHMANDU RESIDENT, MILAN RASIELI, SAYING:

“I have been here for the past three days now, there is no arrangement whatsoever. Last night there was rain, we were all getting drenched including the children. We called authorities for help and they kept saying we are coming in half an hour but nobody came.”

Until more help arrives, people are fending for themselves.

Army personnel have said they are using pick axes to clear debris because bulldozers cannot get through the ancient city’s narrow streets.
