TOKYO, April 26. /TASS/. Japan will dispatch a special disaster response team to Nepal to help local rescue workers deal with the aftermath of the devastating magnitude-7.9 earthquake in this country, Nepal’s government said on Sunday.
According to the latest data, the number of fatalities has climbed to 1805, and 4718 people were injured.
The powerful earthquake that rocked Nepal on Saturday was followed by a series of aftershocks. The most powerful of them was registered at 12.30 local time.
It also triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest, killing at least 18 people.
Seismologists say more aftershocks will occur in the coming two days.
