Nepal Struck by Another Powerful Quake

Another major earthquake has struck in Nepal, just two weeks after a devastating quake took more than 8,000 lives in the same region.

The latest has a magnitude of 7.3, just slightly less damaging than the 7.8 on April 25th.

A spokesman for Nepal’s government told the BBC that 31 of the country’s 75 districts had been affected.
