Episode 316 of 1277 episodes

A huge international rescue operation is underway in Nepal, where hundreds of thousands of people are spending another night in the open following Saturday's earthquake. The Nepali government says the country is short of everything from paramedics to electricity and has deployed almost all its security forces to the rescue effort. Aid workers say almost no help has reached villages near the epicentre, where it's feared entire communities have been destroyed. Kaji Sherpa is the President of the Buddhist Community Centre UK.
