Thousands of desperate Nepalese took shelter under tents and sought help on Monday, two days after a massive quake killed more than 3,600 people, as overwhelmed authorities struggled to provide for the wounded and homeless.
The toll is likely to climb as rescuers struggle to reach remote regions in the impoverished, mountainous country of 28 million people and as bodies buried under rubble are recovered.Below are some images from the country coping with the aftermath of the disaster.
