Mountain rescue teams, helped by clear weather, used helicopters to airlift climbers stranded for two days at high altitude on Mount Everest after a powerful earthquake triggered an avalanche that killed at least 17 people.Romanian climber Alex Gavan said on Twitter that three helicopters had reached camps 1 and 2, which are at altitudes of more than 6,000 meters (20,000 feet). Each helicopter is only capable of carrying two climbers due to the thin air, Gavan said from base camp. Carsten Lillelund Pedersen, a climber from Denmark, posted a video on Facebook showing a helicopter landing to evacuate two climbers and then taking off again 30 seconds later. More than 60 people were injured, leading climbers to send frantic messages calling for helicopter assistance to evacuate the wounded.

A family sits inside their makeshift shelter at an open ground after an earthquake in KathmanduBy Rupam Jain Nair and Ross Adkin BHAKTAPUR, Nepal (Reuters) - Thousands of Nepalis began fleeing the capital Kathmandu on Monday, terror-stricken by two days of powerful aftershocks and fearing shortages of food and water after an earthquake that killed more than 3,200 people. Huge queues had formed at Kathmandu airport with people desperate to get a flight out. Many said they had slept in the open since Saturday's quake, either because their homes were flattened or they were terrified that aftershocks would bring them crashing down. "We are escaping," said Krishna Muktari, who runs a small grocery store in Kathmandu city, standing at a major road intersection.

A girl looks for belongings in her damaged house in Bhaktapur on the outskirts of KathmanduHong Kong (AFP) - 07:22 GMT - AFP IS NOW CLOSING the Live Report on the earthquake in Nepal as international teams equipped with heavy cutting gear and relief supplies start landing round the clock at the country's only international airport on the outskirts of Kathmandu, which has been devastated by Saturday's 7.8 magnitude quake. Officials say more than 3,300 people are now known to have died, including 3,218 in Nepal -- making it the quake-prone Himalayan nation's deadliest disaster in more than 80 years. Families, the sick and elderly have been packed into parks and other open spaces in Kathmandu after losing their houses, with others too terrified of aftershocks to return home. On Mount Everest helicopters have been deployed to rescue about 150 climbers trapped at Camps One and Two after Saturday's avalanche sent down slabs of ice and snow, cutting them off from base camp below, killing at least 18 people.
