Nepal scrambles to organise quake relief, many flee capital
Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:10:53 -0400
By Gopal Sharma, Rupam Jain Nair and Ross Adkin KATHMANDU, Nepal (Reuters) - Nepalese officials scrambled on Monday to get aid from the main airport to people left homeless and hungry by a devastating earthquake two days earlier, while thousands tired of waiting fled the capital Kathmandu for the surrounding plains. By afternoon, the death toll from Saturday's 7.9 magnitude earthquake had climbed to more than 3,700, and reports trickling in from remote areas suggested it would rise significantly. A senior interior ministry official said it could reach as much as 5,000, in the worse such disaster in Nepal since 1934, when 8,500 people were killed. Kathmandu's Tribhuvan International Airport was hobbled by many employees not showing up for work, people trying to get out, and a series of aftershocks which forced it to close several times since the quake.

Hunger and death stalk millions in Yemen's war
Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:05:27 -0400
By Mohammed Mukhashaf and Noah Browning ADEN/DUBAI (Reuters) - Hospitals bereft of electricity, homes crushed by air strikes, thousands on the move in search of water, shelter and food: Yemen's humanitarian plight, long fragile, has become disastrous after a month of all-out war. Crammed with wounded people, some hospitals lacked the electricity or generator fuel to perform surgery, and aid officials say some bodies are now being stored in commercial refrigerators or hastily buried when fetid morgues lack power. In a water-scarce country like Yemen, that means you can't even pump water," said International Committee of the Red Cross spokeswoman Marie Claire Feghali. Hundreds of Saudi-led air strikes and dozens of ground battles across Yemen have left millions in the impoverished country hungry and 150,000 fleeing for their lives.
