KATHMANDU - The number of people killed in Nepal by the Himalayan country's worst earthquake in eight decades has risen to 3,726, a home ministry official said on Monday.

That number represented a jump of 500 from earlier on Monday. Some in the government fear the toll from Saturday's 7.9 magnitude quake could rise to as much as 5,000.
