Death toll from Nepal quake continues to rise


Police in Nepal say the number of people known to have died in Saturday’s earthquake is now more than 3-thousand 600.

Aid is starting to arrive to thousands of people who are living outside because it’s too dangerous to enter their homes.

The Department of Foreign Affairs says 100 Irish people are believed to have been caught up in the quake and it’s working to contact those affected.

While efforts to dig victims out from under the rubble of collapsed buildings are continuing.
