Nepal boy: 'I saw my mum buried under the rubble'

It has been one month since Nepal was hit by the first of two devastating earthquakes. More than 8,000 people were killed.

The death toll could have been higher if the quake had happened on a weekday when children were in school.

The government says that schools will restart on 15 June but many classes will be in tents as school buildings have been destroyed.

Ganesh and Santos Bharati's mother died in the first quake. The two brothers, who live in Chautara, describe life one month on.
