Nepal schools open after quake


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.
Many have only been rebuilt on a temporary basis using materials such as bamboo, wood and tarpaulin.
Classes will initially focus on group activities to help children recover from the trauma of the disaster.
