From Washington, this is VOA news.

I'm Dave DeForest reporting.

Aid is flowing to Nepal: Authorities in that country are carrying out a mass cremation of earthquake victims as the death toll has climbed to more than 4,000.  Anjana Pasricha reports rescue teams are scrambling to reach those who need aid.

More than 48 hours after the magnitude 7.8 earthquake shook Nepal, distraught people prayed and waited to get some news of their loved ones as rescuers used everything from pickaxes to bare hands to sift the rubble. Mass cremations were conducted on Monday as the death toll continued to rise. Relief efforts slowly picked up pace after the killer quake and powerful aftershocks left tens of thousands homeless. It is the worst disaster in living memory for most Nepalese. Anjana Pasricha for VOA news, New Delhi.”
