Topic: Homeless Nepalis sleep in the open as monsoon rains approach


By Tommy Wilkes THALI, Nepal (Reuters) - Nepali tea shop owner Phurba Sherpa has spent four nights cramped under a tarpaulin with his wife and nine others on a school field outside Kathmandu since falling rocks triggered by an earthquake last week demolished his distant mountain village. The Nepali government is struggling to provide shelter for more than a million people like Sherpa who were uprooted by two massive earthquakes, first on April 25 and then 17 days later. Tens of thousands are sleeping in the open, with monsoon rains possibly little more than a fortnight away.
