Two quakes jolt Kathmandu

Two earthquakes of moderate intensity jolted the Nepalese capital Kathmandu this morning, triggering panic among people who rushed out of buildings.

A 4.3 magnitude aftershock was recorded at 10.24 am local time, with epicentre in Kathmandu. Another one of 3.7 magnitude was felt at 4.20 am in the capital’s Kirtipur area, according to the National Seismological Centre.

The quakes were strong enough to force people out of buildings. A total number of 378 aftershocks with 4 or more magnitude have been recorded since the devastating temblor on April 25 that killed some 9,000 people
