Second earthquake in two weeks devastates region

At least 16 people are reported dead and more than 300 injured as a second earthquake has struck Nepal, this time at a magnitude of 7.3, flattening buildings 30 miles away.

The aftershocks have been felt in India and Bangladesh.

Two weeks previously in Nepal, a 7.8 earthquake killed more than 8,000 people and injured more than 17,800.
