Handout shows people standing on the runway outside the International Terminal after a earthquake hit, at Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu, NepalBy Gopal Sharma KATHMANDU (Reuters) - A shallow earthquake measuring 7.9 magnitude struck west of the ancient Nepali capital of Kathmandu on Saturday causing buildings to collapse, injuring many and leaving a pall of dust over the city, witnesses said. The initial unconfirmed death toll was at least four but could be expected to rise significantly as Kathmandu's decrepit buildings, crisscrossed by narrow alleys, are home to large families. At the main hospital in Kathmandu, people with broken limbs and arms were being rushed in for treatment. A girl died after a statue fell on her in a park in Kathmandu, a witness said, while another died in India when her house collapsed.
