Nepal quake: Damaged schools re-open in Kathmandu

Thousands of schools damaged during April's devastating earthquake in Nepal have begun to re-open.

More than 25,000 classrooms were destroyed in the 7.8 magnitude quake and its aftershocks, and more than 8,000 people died.

Galaxy Public School in Kathmandu is one of the schools reopening. Other schools have been rebuilt on a temporary basis because the classrooms were destroyed by the quake.
