Severe quake hits Nepal

The 7.9 magnitude quake hit Nepal half way between Kathmandu and Pokhara.

The initial unconfirmed death toll was put at four but it’s feared the final figure could be higher.

Dozens have been injured as buildings and walls came crashing down.

The wrecked buildings include a historic 19th century tower in Kathmandu which collapsed, trapping at least 50 people in the rubble, according to media reports.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake hit 80 kilometres east of Pokhara and was only two kilometres deep.

Tremors were felt as far away as New Delhi and other cities in northern India.
