A fresh 7.3 earthquake rattled Nepal and northern India on Tuesday, killing at least nine people and injuring 300 in the region as many buildings already weakened by last month's massive temblor were sent tumbling to the ground.

At least four people were killed in Chautara town in Sindhupalchowk district, north of the Nepali capital Kathmandu, a spokesman for the International Organization for Migration said.

Police in the Himalayan nation confirmed at least three deaths, as the government struggled with patchy phone lines to gather information. It wasn't immediately clear if they were referring to the same people.



Four people were also killed in Indian states bordering Nepal, one in Uttar Pradesh and three in Bihar, officials said.

One person died in Tibet after rocks fell on a car, according to Chinese state media.
