Cameron turns up the passion on UK election trail

Sunday, 11:53 AM

British Prime Minister David Cameron speaks during a Conservative Party general election campaign event in Norton Sub Hamdon near Yeovil, on April 25, 2015British Prime Minister David Cameron hit back Sunday at critics who claim his re-election campaign lacks passion, insisting he has the will to win a knife-edge poll on May 7. A shirtsleeved Cameron joked that those looking for excitement should "go to Greece", which risks a default and possible exit from the euro, during an animated stump speech in southwest England. "We don't always shout with the passion that some people would like but don't mistake that for any lack of drive in changing this great country of ours," added Cameron, gesticulating freely and often stopping to catch his breath. Experts say that, unless one party pulls ahead, Britain is set for a hung parliament, meaning that the Conservatives or Labour will have to team up with a smaller party to govern.

A Nepali man talks on the phone as his relative is treated for injuries in a Kathmandu hospital on April 26, 2015Aid groups and governments worldwide intensified efforts Sunday to help earthquake-hit Nepal, but blocked roads, downed power lines and overcrowded hospitals posed formidable challenges in an already poor country. As the death toll in the Himalayan nation surpassed 2,500, the US together with European and Asian nations sent emergency crews to reinforce those scrambling to find survivors in the devastated capital Kathmandu and in cut-off rural areas. "Tragically, more bodies are being pulled from collapsed buildings every hour," the Australian Red Cross said in a statement. Mike Bruce, regional communications manager for the Plan International aid organisation, said many areas -- both rural and in some of the larger towns -- had suffered landslides and roads were blocked.

Sunday, 9:38 AM

By Rupam Jain Nair KATHMANDU (Reuters) - A massive earthquake in Nepal has exposed the woeful state of its medical facilities as hospitals struggle to treat vast numbers of injured with limited supplies and staff.
