Topic: Boy, woman rescued in Kathmandu rubble, aid reaches some remote areas


By Gopal Sharma and Rupam Jain Nair KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Hundreds cheered as rescuers toiling amid rubble left by Nepal's earthquake pulled a boy and a woman to safety on Thursday after they had been trapped for five days. A 23-year-old maid, Krishna Devi Khadka, was found lying along with the bodies of three other people, police said. Away from the capital, aid was finally reaching some of Nepal's remote towns and villages nestled among mountains and foothills, where the extent of the damage and loss of life has yet to be properly assessed. From an army helicopter flying from Chautara, northeast of Kathmandu, toward the Tibet border, a Reuters witness estimated 70 to 80 percent of buildings had been severely damaged.
