(TibetanReview.net, May14, 2015) – A Tibetan woman died and her two co-passengers were injured after the car in which they were travelling were hit by falling rocks in Kyirong County-town in Tibet Autonomous Region as a result of a 7.3-magnitude earthquake which jolted neighbouring Nepal on May 12 afternoon. China’s official Xinhua news agency May 12 named the woman as Chodron and said she was a local resident. Three houses were reported to have collapsed in neighbouring Nyalam County.

The latest development takes the number of Tibetans killed by the 7.9-magntitude earthquake which hit Nepal on Apr 25, followed by successive aftershocks, to 27, with more than 800 people injured. Nyalam, including its border town of Dram, and Kyirong were the most severely hit Tibetan areas in the earthquake.

In Nepal itself, the latest earthquake was reported to have killed more than 60 people and injured more than 1000. In neighbouring India too, people were reported to have died in the latest quake.

The total number of the dead in Nepal has now exceeded 8,000, including 10 Tibetans.
