The death toll from a massive quake in Nepal will climb "much higher" as emergency workers reach remote villages, the mountainous country's finance minister said Sunday.

"There are still villages where we know that all houses have been destroyed, but have not yet been able to reach. The aftershocks have not receded and we expect the final casualty numbers to climb much higher," said Ram Sharan Mahat.
