KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) An official in Nepal says at least 2,152 people are now confirmed dead in the massive earthquake that hit just outside of Kathmandu.
Deputy Inspector General of Police Komal Singh Bam gave no further details Sunday.
Saturday's 7.8 magnitude temblor struck Nepal before noon and was most severely felt in the capital and the densely populated Kathmandu Valley. Aftershocks are rippled through the region Sunday, spreading fear and panic.
The biggest of the aftershocks was magnitude 6.7 and sent people yelling and running for open ground.
