UPDATE: Nepal Home Ministry raises death toll in latest quake to 36

Posted:

KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) -- Nepal's Home Ministry has raised the death toll from the latest quake to at least 36, while saying another 1,117 people had been injured.

The magnitude-7.3 quake hit hardest in remote mountain districts northeast of the capital of Nepal, terrifying a nation already shell-shocked by a more powerful quake on April 25 that killed more than 8,000 and flattened entire villages.

Information was slow to reach the capital after Tuesday's quake, but officials and aid workers said they expected the death toll to almost certainly rise.
