The death toll continues to rise after another major earthquake in Nepal. The Nepalese Home Ministry says at least 42 people died and another 11-hundred and 17 people were injured when the magnitude-7.3 quake hit a remote mountainous region northeast of Kathmandu. Today’s quake came less than three weeks after the country was ravaged by another devastating quake that led to more than 81-hundred deaths. The international airport in Kathmandu, which has become a transport hub for international aid, was closed temporarily.
