KATHMANDU- A magnitude-7.3 earthquake has hit Nepal near the Chinese border between the capital of Kathmandu and Mount Everest.

Nepal's Home Ministry says at least 42 people were killed and 1,117 were injured in the latest earthquake.

An official with an International Organization for Migration said a number of buildings collapsed in the isolated town of Chautara after Nepal's earthquake, with at least four people were killed.

IOM spokesman Paul Dillon said a search and rescue team had already begun searching through the wreckage of the little town.

Chautara has become a hub for humanitarian aid in the wake of the April 25 hub, with dozens of aid workers now based there to send help deeper into the countryside.
