Massive rainstorm in Nepal, 35 killed and over 400 injured

At least 35 people were killed and 400 others injured as a massive rainstorm hit several villages in southern Nepal, officials said on Monday. The number of deaths would likely increase as the storm had hit many villages in the Bara district, located about 120 kilometers (75 miles) south of the capital, Kathmandu, said Government administrator Rajesh Poudel. The storm hit many villages in Parsa districts also, according to the Home Ministry officials.
