KTLA

Breaking News Update:  At least 36 people have died in Nepal as a result of Tuesday’s magnitude-7.3 quake, and another 1,129 people were injured, said Laxmi Prasad Dhakal, a spokesman for Nepal’s Home Ministry. With three deaths in India previously reported, CNN’s count of the deaths in Nepal and India related to Tuesday’s earthquake is at 39.
