Drone footage shows utter devastation after Nepal quake

This amateur drone footage shows in devastating detail the extent of the damage inflicted on Nepal’s capital city of Kathmandu one day after a 7.8 earthquake ravaged the country.

The video — uploaded to YouTube by user Kishor Rana, according to BBC News — shows famous Nepalese landmarks, such as the Dharahara Tower, reduced to rubble.

As of Monday the death toll has risen to over 4000.
