A young boy has told how he was buried alive for five days after the Nepal earthquake that killed more than 6,000 people.

Pempa Tamang, 15, said he listened to bulldozers clearing mountains of debris, fearful the incessant aftershocks might collapse the darkened crevice he was trapped in.

And then, “all of the sudden I saw light,” he said, recounting the moment on Thursday he was pulled from a hole at the bottom of what was once a seven-storey building in Kathmandu.
