Horrific photos from Nepal earthquake that killed over 2,000 people.

Rescue workers remove debris as they search for victims of the earthquake in the city of Bhaktapur found in the east of the Kathmandu Valley

The full horror of the Nepalese earthquake which has claimed 2,300 lives unfolded this morning in the towns of the Kathmandu Valley which have been reduced to rubble.
Scarcely covered by white sheets, the bodies of those buried alive in their homes have been laid in the street. Overrun by the escalating disaster and in fear of any deadly aftershocks which could collapse yet more buildings,  hospital staff have begun treating the wounded outside.  
Frantic rescuers were seen using their hands to dig through the debris this morning as the death toll crept up to 2,300 across four countries. Search teams said yet more bodies were being pulled 'by the hour'. 
Hundreds are still missing, chief among them climbers stranded on Mount Everest after an avalanche sparked by the tremor buried its base camp on Saturday afternoon. 
In Kathmandu, survivors told of the terrifying moment the earthquake's aftershock struck this morning. Appealing to the international community via social media, they begged for blood and care packages to sustain the remaining population. 
For the dead, makeshift pyres have been erected in fields and public parks. Their corpses have been left on the ground with grieving mothers gathering around them.
