Massive landslide buries 3 classrooms; kills 1 and injures 12 in Nepal
A landslide triggered by heavy monsoon rains buried parts of a school in western Nepal on Thursday, killing a student and injuring 12 people
The police said the landslide buried three classrooms at the school in Pokhara, where students were sitting end-of-term exams. “One student was killed and 12 others, including three teachers, were injured,” district police chief Hari Bahadur Pal told newsmen, adding that most students had already finished their exams and left when the landslide hit.
Pal said the injured were being treated at a local hospital and none were in a critical condition. Scores of people die every year from flooding and landslides during the monsoon season in Nepal.
