Tuesday's new earthquake in Nepal measuring 7.4 has left at least 29 people dead and 1006 injured, officials say.

The tremors were felt strongly in Kathmandu, the capital, but also throughout Nepal and as far as India, Bangladesh and China (the epicenter was located near the Chinese border).

The latest incident has come as a shock to residents who left buildings in Kathmandu and elsewhere looking for open speces.

Nepal is still struggling to recover from the devastating quake which claimed nearly 8000 lives in the end of April.
