Nepal rescuers speak of 'chaos' during earthquake rescues

Nearly a week after Nepal's earthquake, the government says it still hopes to discover more people trapped alive under the rubble.

Two people were rescued on Thursday, but the official death toll rises every day, and now stands at more than 6,200.

Rescue teams have spoken of days spent in the capital, Kathmandu, waiting for direction from the government.

Some have now resorted to making their own way out of the city to find and treat survivors.

Divya Arya has travelled through one of the worst affected areas, the district around Chautara, with a rescue team.
