Kathmandu, May 3: Nepal on Sunday told the intertiol community to urgently step up its earthquake relief as the death toll from the April 25 temblor climbed to 7,100, with 2.8 million people displaced across the Himalayan tion. Underlining the gravity of the situation, Prime Minister Sushil Koirala told a top UN official here that relief goods reaching Nepal were not enough and that the world must speed up its efforts to help his battered country sandwiched between India and Chi. Although a semblance of normal life can be seen in some parts of Kathmandu, much of the city and indeed the country are still carrying the scars of the killer quake. To add to the woes, three tremors were recorded on Sunday in different parts of Nepal. The biggest was 4.5 on the Richter scale. Though officials are asking people not to worry, every aftershock triggers fear.
