Hong Kong (AFP) - 03:29 GMT - WELCOME TO AFP'S LIVE REPORT on the earthquake as International rescue teams and relief supplies begin arriving in Nepal's devastated capital to help terrified and homeless survivors of a quake that has killed more than 3,200 people in the impoverished nation.
Ukraine will press European leaders for peacekeepers to patrol its war-torn east and will angle for more international financial support at two days of high-level talks starting Monday. Its pro-Western President Petro Poroshenko called on EU leaders to "provide powerful signals in support of Ukraine and its European integration in the course of the summit". Poroshenko is to meet with leaders, including the head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker, at a summit on Monday and with other international officials the day after at a conference showcasing cash-strapped Ukraine's economic reforms. Ukraine will nudge its allies to send peacekeepers to the east where its army is fighting pro-Russian separatists -- a move the EU is reluctant to make.
