    KATHMANDU, NEPAL (AP) – An earthquake in Nepal rattled villages in remote Himalayan mountains yesterday, killing at least one person and injuring many more, officials said.

    The 5.9 magnitude earthquake with an epicentre in Bajura district hit in the afternoon, sending people fleeing their houses, according to chief district officer Puskar Khadka.

    He said one person was confirmed dead but details were still sketchy because many of the villages are accessible only by foot. Soldiers and police rescuers had already been dispatched, Khadka said.
