Description

Powerful aftershocks are adding to the disarray in Nepal's capital city. The death toll now exceeds 25-hundred people, including those killed in India, Bangladesh, China's region of Tibet and Pakistan. That number is expected to climb as rescue crews reach remote areas, and sift through the rubble. With some 5,000 wounded, hospitals are overwhelmed. Now, some relief is on the way. As CCTV's Tony Cheng reports from Kathmandu, the airport has reopened, allowing aid to get in and some to get out.
