Nepal Earthquake: Two Rescued After Five Days.

Two people have been rescued from the rubble of buildings in Kathmandu, five days after an earthquake that killed at least 5,500
in Nepal.
A 15-year-old boy told the BBC he survived by drinking water from wet clothes and eating clarified butter.
Elsewhere, a woman was pulled from a collapsed block where she had been trapped alongside three bodies.
Meanwhile, bad weather is hampering the delivery of relief to remote villages, a Nepali government spokesman said.
The government has been criticised for its response to the disaster.
Outside Kathmandu, the relief effort has relied heavily on helicopters, with mountain roads blocked by landslides triggered by the earthquake.
Laxmi Dhakal, a spokesperson for Nepal's home ministry, told the BBC that helicopters had been held back by "rainfall and cloudy conditions". 

In Kathmandu, rescue workers from Nepal and the US worked for hours to free the boy from the rubble of the building.
A huge crowd cheered as Pemba Lama emerged, blinking into the sunlight.
He was carried away with a brace strapped around his neck, and was taken to an Israeli-run field hospital.
He later told the BBC: "There were so many people around me in the rubble. They were screaming."
The woman, called Krishna and in her 20s, was working as a maid in a Kathmandu hostel when the quake struck.
The BBC's Clive Myrie, who was at the scene, says rescue teams from five different countries dug through the rubble for four hours to reach the woman who was awake but in a weak condition.
They attached a saline drip to her arm to rehydrate her, and a dead body had to be removed before she could be brought out. In all, the rescue took more than eight hours.
