Nepal Calls for Direct Quake Funding

One month after the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal, the country's finance minister has called for more direct aid funding.
Dr Ram Sharan Mahat told the BBC less than 10% of the money spent on relief by his government came from overseas.
His comments comes as Nepal's government faces growing criticism over its handling of the crisis.
Dr Mahat said he hoped future international donations would be managed directly by his government.
The earthquake that hit on 25 April, and a second major tremor on 12 May, killed more than 8,600 people and brought down buildings in Kathmandu and the country's central districts.
