The quake measured 7.9 and struck an area between the capital Kathmandu and the city of Pokhara, according to the US Geological Survey.

Tremors were felt across the region, as far afield as Pakistan, Bangladesh and neighbouring India. Roads, buildings and houses have been destroyed.

At least 50 people are trapped under the rubble of the city’s iconic nine-storey Dharahara tower, which was brought down in the quake.

Police have removed several bodies from the 19th Century tourist site, also known as the Bhimsen Tower.
