Topic: Another strong earthquake hits Nepal, no reports of casualties


By Ross Adkin and Gopal Sharma KATHMANDU (Reuters) - A strong earthquake shook Nepal on Tuesday, sending people in the capital Kathmandu rushing out on to the streets just weeks after a devastating quake killed more than 8,000 people and destroyed hundreds of thousands of homes. The U.S. Geological Survey said Tuesday's earthquake had a magnitude of 7.4 and struck 68 km (about 42 miles) west of the town of Namche Bazar, close to Mount Everest and the border with Tibet. People in Kathmandu, panic-stricken after the April 25 quake, rushed outdoors, Reuters reporters said.
