A fresh 7.3-magnitude earthquake has hit Nepal and northern India, killing at least 37 people and injuring more than 900 in the region.

Many buildings already weakened by last month's massive earthquake were sent tumbling to the ground this morning.

Aid workers reported serious damage to some villages seen from the air and witnesses reported seeing rocks and mud crashing down remote hillsides lined with roads and small hamlets.

The quake was followed by at least half a dozen aftershocks, including one 6.3 magnitude quake.
