(Nepal quake) NGO says moving to interior difficult
(04-30 14:50)

Getting access to the affected areas in Nepal is proving to be difficult as the country's infrastructure is stretched to the maximum, the Manager of the Emergency Response Support Unit at Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) Hong Kong.
Talking to RTHK, Natasha Reyes, said even getting the needed supplies to Kathmandu is difficult due to the limitations of the airport.
“Moving from Kathmandu to the more affected interior areas is also difficult. Most of the blocked roads are now clear but fuel is a problem," Ms Reyes said. "Some of the areas can be reached only by walking for days.''
