KATHMANDU, Nepal, May 12 (UPI) -- A 7.3-magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on Tuesday, just weeks after another earthquake devastated parts of the nation and killed more than 8,000 people. At least 37 people were killed and more than 1,000 were injured in the town of Chautara by the latest earthquake. At least 17 also died in India and one in Tibet. A 6.3-magnitude aftershock shortly followed Tuesday's quake.
The earthquakes occurred about 50 miles east of Kathmandu, the country's capital.
