Nepal quake victims still stranded in remote villages
The government has yet to assess the full scale of the damage wrought by Saturday’s 7.9 magnitude earthquake, unable to reach many mountainous areas despite an outpouring of aid supplies and personnel from around the world.
Prime Minister Sushil Koirala said the death toll could reach 10,000, as information from remote villages and towns has yet to come in.
Nepal told aid agencies it did not need more foreign rescue teams to help search for survivors because its government and military could cope.
Experts said the chances of finding survivors among the ruins more than four days after the disaster has struck are slim.
