Image of Asia: Damage and loss a month later in Nepal

A Nepalese man who lost his family members goes inside his damaged house one month after the deadly 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Kathmandu, Nepal Monday, May 25, 2015. Two powerful earthquakes devastated Nepal on April 25 and May 12, killing nearly 8,700 people and injuring 16,800 others. The quakes and aftershocks also triggered many landslides in the Himalayan nation, which boasts eight of the world's highest mountains gets about half a million tourists every year, with many coming to trek the Himalayan nation's scenic mountain trails.

In this photo by Niranjan Shrestha, a man who lost his family members in the deadly earthquake one month ago walks into his damaged house in Kathmandu, Nepal. Two powerful earthquakes on April 25 and May 12 killed nearly 8,700 people and damaged or destroyed thousands of buildings in the Himalayan nation. Hundreds of families are still living in open camps and temporary shelters and many schools remain shut. The coming monsoon season is a concern, and the government has sent geologists to remote villages to assess their risk of landslides before the rains begin in a few weeks.
