Countries have pledged some US$165 million (€138 million) to aid the victims of Saturday's devastating earthquake in South Asia, the United Nations said Thursday. "We are in a hurry; we should all be in a hurry to rush assistance to victims," said Yvette Stevens, an emergency relief coordinator of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. "They should not be allowed to go through yet another traumatic experience."
