This Is Nepal After the Quake

A 7.8 earthquake on Saturday, captured here in 15 images, devastated the poor Asian nation of Nepal, killing more than 4,000 people. Among them were climbers on Mount Everest hit by an avalanche. The cost of rebuilding could "easily exceed" $5 billion, the chief Asia economist at IHS told Bloomberg TV. That's about 20 percent of Nepal’s gross domestic product, Unni Krishnan and Kartikay Mehrotra of Bloomberg News report.
