NEPAL QUAKE TOLL CROSSES 2,200, CONTINUE CLIMBING

KATHMANDU, Nepal -  Sleeping in the streets and shell-shocked, Nepalese cremated the dead and dug through rubble for the missing Sunday, a day after a massive Himalayan earthquake killed more than 2,200 people, reports AP.
Aftershocks tormented them, making buildings sway and sending panicked Kathmandu residents running into the streets.
The cawing of crows mixed with terrified screams as the worst of the aftershocks - magnitude 6.7 - pummelled the capital city. It came as planeloads of supplies, doctors and relief workers from neighboring countries began arriving in this poor Himalayan nation.
No deaths or injuries were reported from the early Sunday afternoon quake, but it took an emotional toll.
Earlier an official in Nepal said that at least 2,152 people are now confirmed dead in the massive earthquake that hit just outside of Kathmandu.
A 7.9 magnitude temblor struck Nepal before noon on Saturday and was most severely felt in the capital and the densely populated Kathmandu Valley. Aftershocks are rippled through the region Sunday, spreading fear and panic.
The biggest of the aftershocks was magnitude 6.7 and sent people yelling and running for open ground on Sunday.
