Nepal earthquake: Teenager pulled alive from ruins

Five days after the devastating earthquake in Nepal, a teenage boy and a woman in her twenties, have been rescued from the rubble.

There were cheers and tears of joy, as they were brought out, a few hours apart, from a collapsed building in Kathmandu.

Fifteen-year-old Pemba Lama, a tour guide, told aid workers he had survived by eating butter, and could hear the screams of others.

Yogita Limaye reports from Kathmandu on the first rescue.
