A mild earthquake measuring 4.6-magnitude on the Richter scale hit Nepal's Capital Kathmandu early on Saturday morning, more than two months after the country's worst quake in decades struck the country on April 25.

The aftershock was recorded by the National Seismological Centre at 1:49am with its epicentre in Dhading district.

A total 340 aftershocks with 4 or more magnitude have been recorded since the April 25 quake.

Earlier this week, as many as six tremors were felt over a period of two days.

The April 25 earthquake claimed nearly 9,000 lives and caused widespread destruction in various parts of the country.
