Massive earthquake strikes in Nepal

A massive 7.5 magnitude earthquake has hit in Nepal, between the capital Kathmandu and the city of Pokhara. The quake was felt across the entire region including India. Many buildings, temples and historic sites collapsed, burying an unknown number of people. At least 600 people have been killed so far, but the death toll is expected to rise. Travellers should avoid the affected areas since essential services and transportation are probably disrupted. After shocks will probably occur.
