People in Nepal have gathered in the capital Kathmandu, holding a candlelight vigil, to mark the first anniversary of a devastating earthquake that ripped through the Himalayan nation and killed thousands of people.

The Nepalese residents gathered Sunday in Durbar Square, a UNESCO-listed world heritage site, along with a dozen crimson-robed monks chanting from Buddhist scriptures at a memorial, as the grieving relatives of victims, sat in front of photos of their loved ones, praying.
