The UK on Monday deeply regretted the loss of life in the powerful 6.8-magnitude earthquake that killed at least seven people in Nepal as it underlined its commitment “to do everything possible” to help the people and the government to overcome the tragedy.

Three persons were crushed to death when a wall of the British embassy compound collapsed in the capital Kathmandu on Sunday following the quake.

“The British Embassy deeply regrets the deaths of three Nepali citizens ...as a result of the collapse of part of the embassy compound perimeter wall,” the mission said in statement.
