A major earthquake has struck eastern Nepal, near Mount Everest, two weeks after more than 8,000 people died in a devastating quake. At least 65 people have died in Nepal and more than 1,000 injured, officials say. At least 17 have also died in India. It had a magnitude of 7.3, compared with the 7.8 of the 25 April quake.

The quake was felt in northern India, Tibet and Bangladesh. India’s home ministry said 16 people had been killed in the state of Bihar, and one more in Uttar Pradesh. Officials in China said one person was confirmed dead in Tibet.

As we stand there are massive recovery efforts under-way to aid victims of the latest earthquake in Nepal, and those affected by the larger earthquake last month. We are also hoping for good news regarding the US Marine helicopter that went missing tonight with eight people on board. Marines and Nepalese soldiers had landed to deliver supplies, and contact was lost shortly after they took off again.
