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.
Russia’s embassy in Nepal said some 40 Russians are still missing as they have failed to contact with the diplomats. Mobile connections have been partially restored in Kathmandu, although there is no Internet working in the city.
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.
The earthquake triggered avalanches on the world’s highest Mount Everest, killing some 80 climbers. Tremors were felt in the Indian capital New Delhi and in its eastern, northern and northeastern states, where over 60 people were killed and more than 250 others injured, and also in Myanmar and Bangladesh.
