KATHMANDU, April 30. /TASS/. Aftershocks measuring up to 6-magnitude hit Nepal’s capital Kathmandu this night, Russia’s embassy in the Himalayan republic told TASS on Thursday.
The diplomats say several dozen aftershocks measuring above 4 have been registered by seismologists in the epicenter of the earthquake. Nepal’s authorities say a total of 102 aftershocks with magnitude above 4 have hit the country.
According to the latest data provided by the authorities, a total of 5,006 people have been killed and around 10,000 have been injured and have sought medical assistance following the quake.

A devastating magnitude 7.9 earthquake rocked western Nepal on April 25. Some 1,900 houses have been ruined and at least 4,000 others have been damaged.
