Nepal was hit by a strong earthquake on Tuesday close to its border with China, weeks after the devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake killed thousands. 

According to the US Geological Survey, the fresh aftershock measured a massive 7.3 on the Richter scale. 

The epicentre was Namche Bazaar, which is close to the Everest base camp and about 52 miles from the capital of Kathmandu. 

An earthquake also struck Afghanistan, while some reports suggested that Indonesia was also struck by a 5.4 magnitude quake.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has reportedly said that two earthquakes struck India, with one epicenter at the China-Nepal border and one in Afghanistan.

The earthquake that struck in Afghanistan reportedly measured 4.7 on the Richter scale.

Tremors were felt across north India, with some reports stating that tremors were felt as far as Chennai in south India. 

According to CNN-IBN, all three epicenters in Afghanistan, Nepal and Indonesia were in a 'line' in south Asia. 

Nepal was devastated by the earthquake that hit the nation on 25 April, with the toll rising above 8,000.
