A crematorium worker at Pashupatinath Hindu temple in Kathmandu puts wood onto a pyre where a body of a person who was killed in the earthquake is being burned.
Nepalese crematoriums are now working around the clock and have almost non stop funerals. Many corpses are stored in special facilities for days in a queue to be cremated. Relatives of the deceased are not always present at the cremations, as many people are still in hospitals with serious injuries.
On 25 April 2015 a powerful earthquake of 7.8 magnitude struck central Nepal, causing widespread destruction and killing approximately 7,760 people (29 April estimate).
