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.”

我是戴夫 德福雷斯特。

救援工作正源源不断的涌向尼泊尔。尼泊尔当局正在进行地震中遇难人员的集中火化工作,死亡人数已上升至4000多人。阿南塔帕斯里卡报道称救援小组正在奋力赶往需要救援的地方。

发生在尼泊尔的7.8级地震48多个小时后,救援人员用镐头或徒手在废墟中检查是否有生还人员。忧心如焚的民众祈祷并等待着从救援人员中得知他们亲人的消息。死亡人数持续上升,因而在周一举行大规模的火化工作。在大地震及强烈的余震过后,成千上万人无家可归。救灾工作陆续开始展开。对于大多数尼泊尔民众来说,这是记忆中有史以来最大的灾难。美国之音,阿南塔帕斯里卡于新德里发来的报道。
