Two people have been rescued from the rubble of buildings in Kathmandu
Bangladesh Time: Two people have been rescued from the rubble of buildings in Kathmandu, five days after an earthquake that killed at least 5,500 in Nepal.
A 15-year-old boy survived by drinking water from wet clothes and eating clarified butter.
Elsewhere, a woman was pulled from a collapsed block where she had been trapped alongside three bodies.
Meanwhile, bad weather is hampering the delivery of relief to remote villages, a Nepali government spokesman said.
The government has been criticised for its response to the disaster.
Outside Kathmandu, the relief effort has relied heavily on helicopters, with mountain roads blocked by landslides triggered by the earthquake.
Laxmi Dhakal, a spokesperson for Nepal's home ministry, told the BBC that helicopters had been held back by "rainfall and cloudy conditions".

In Kathmandu, rescue workers from Nepal and the US worked for hours to free the boy from the rubble of the building.
A huge crowd cheered as Pemba Lama emerged, blinking into the sunlight.
He was carried away with a brace strapped around his neck, and was taken to an Israeli-run field hospital.
He later told the BBC: "There were so many people around me in the rubble. They were screaming."

The woman, called Krishna and in her 20s, was working as a maid in a Kathmandu hostel when the quake struck.
She was trapped in the rubble of a lower floor with the bodies of three people, including her uncle. One body had to be removed before she could be freed by rescue teams from Norway, Israel and France.
A relative said she had heard screams and asked people to search the building.
