KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) A Nepalese government official says the death toll from Tuesday's magnitude-7.3 earthquake has risen to at least 19.
Home Ministry official Laxmi Dhakal says the quake also left at least 981 people injured.
The earthquake hit a remote mountains region of Nepal early Tuesday afternoon, triggering landslides and toppling buildings less than three weeks after the country was ravaged by its worst quake in decades.
