Collapsed building is pictured after an earthquake hit, in KathmanduBy Gopal Sharma and Ross Adkin KATHMANDU (Reuters) - A powerful earthquake struck Nepal and sent tremors through northern India on Saturday, killing more than 1,000 people, toppling a 19th-century tower in the capital Kathmandu and touching off a deadly avalanche on Mount Everest. There were reports of devastation in outlying, isolated mountainous areas after the midday quake of magnitude 7.9, Nepal's worst in 81 years, centered 50 miles (80 km) east of the second city, Pokhara. India was first to respond by sending in military aircraft with medical equipment and relief teams. A police official said the death toll in Nepal alone had reached 1,130, more than half of them in the Kathmandu Valley.
