Thousands of Nepalese citizens spent the night outdoors following a devastating earthquake which killed at least 1,900 people.
Mountaineering officials say the quake triggered avalanches which killed at least 17 people on Mount Everest - in the worst ever disaster on the peak.
Here are the latest developments (27/April/2015)
"India is with Nepal in this hour of crisis... rescue operations are a priority," Prime Minister Narendra Modi said today in his monthly radio-address Mann ki Baat. He is monitoring the rescue operation, the status of which was discussed at a review meet this afternoon.
So far, over 1300 Indians have been brought back from Nepal through defence and civilian aircraft. India will press into service 35 buses also to bring people back, foreign secretary S Jaishankar told the media.
But the rescue operations were hampered today by an aftershock that measured 6.7 on the Richter scale. The epicenter of the quake was Kodari, 80 km east of Kathmandu near China border, said the US Geological Survey.
Following the aftershock, Kathmandu's Tribhuban airport was shut down for over two hours and the Air Traffic Control personnel were evacuated.
