US soldiers stay in Nepal to help after earthquake
KATHMANDU, NEPAL - The State Department says at least four Americans have died in Nepal's earthquake.
Spokesman Jeff Rathke says all of the U.S. citizens were killed at the Mount Everest base camp.
He identified two as Ely Taplin and Vinh B. Truong.
The other two haven't been named yet, either because consular officials have not confirmed their identities or their next of kin have not been notified.
The official death toll from the disaster has soared past 4,000 people, though that number is expected to climb significantly.
