Nepal earthquake: 'We just felt fresh tremors,' says climber

Mountaineer Arjun Vajpal is at the base camp of Mount Makalu, in the Himalayas, on the China-Nepal border.

He said climbers were now off the mountain and back at base camp, but the tremors were continuing.

"We just felt some fresh tremors here, big pieces of ice came down... it seemed a little scary."

Nearly 2,000 people were killed on Saturday in the worst earthquake to hit Nepal in more than 80 years.
