Shrestha and six members of his family now sleep in a one-room shack in the shadow of where they once lived, an 82-year-old brick building that the quake battered into near-collapse.

A police officer prevents attendees from leaving the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest after it was reported that shots were fired outside the venueTwo gunmen opened fire on Sunday at an art exhibit in Garland, Texas, featuring depictions of the Prophet Mohammad and were themselves shot dead at the scene by police, the city said in a statement. The shooting, an echo of past attacks or threats in other Western countries on art depicting the Prophet, was reported shortly before 7 p.m. at the Curtis Culwell Center. The center is a special-events venue that hosts graduation ceremonies, concerts, trade shows, weddings and sporting events in Garland, northeast of Dallas. The two armed suspects drove up to the front of the building in a car as the event, called the "Muhammad Art Exhibit," was coming to an end, and began shooting at a security officer, the city said in a message posted online.
