A Nepalese resident carries a child as she walks past damaged homes in Bhaktapur on the outskirts of Kathmandu on May 13, 2015, following a new earthquake that hit May 12.

Thousands of traumatised survivors spent the night outdoors, afraid to return to their houses after the 7.3-magnitude quake hit, less than three weeks after the country was devastated by its deadliest quake in more than 80 years.
