Selfies photographers flock to Kathmandu
Four days have passed since the earthquake struck Nepal and Kathmandu. The quake, which was measured at 7.9, has killed thousands of people. Around eight million are affected.

There are fears that up to ten thousand may have been killed in the quake. Rescuers from large parts of the world is about to make their way to Kathmandu, and those who are already there have their hands full with saving lives.

Now they have also got a new challenge to deal with.

Many come to the destroyed buildings to take selfies.

Especially around the remains of the Dharahara Tower in Kathmandu selfies enthusiasts flock to. The more than 60 meters high tower collapsed in the quake on Saturday, and many people were trapped in the tower.

A rescue worker said that those who take these pictures do not understand the extent of the disaster.

The economy student Pawan Tapa came from the suburbs to Kathmandu to assist in rescue efforts. He is outraged over the selfies photographers.

- This is earthquake tourism. It is not right. They are more concerned with taking selfies than to understand that this is a tragedy, he says.
