Nepali village tells story of official neglect

LIPING, Nepal -- The small village of Liping, just next to Nepal's border with Tibet, is still reeling from the impact of a series of devastating earthquakes that struck Nepal from April 25, 2015.

     The highway that runs through the village, once the main northern border crossing with China, remains essentially closed 11 months after the quake. The road is still strewn with rocks and debris and China has all but closed the border gateway. Cross-border traffic has now been routed through Rasuwagadhi-Kerung, north of Nepal's capital, Kathmandu.
