'No chance' to find more survivors
Bangladesh Time: "We are trying our best in rescue and relief work but now I don't think that there is any possibility of survivors under the rubble," Home Ministry spokesman Laxmi Prasad Dhakal told AFP.
Nepal said 14,021 people were injured in the 7.9 magnitude quake.
The fate of thousands of people in remote areas remains unknown.
On Friday, the EU envoy to Nepal, Rensje Teerink, said the authorities did not know the whereabouts of some 1,000 EU citizens.
The death toll in Nepal could go up as search and rescue efforts are still continuing in several hill districts including Dhading, Rasuwa and Sindhupalchok, relief co-ordinator Hemanta Pal said.

Nepal earlier called for more foreign help and humanitarian aid, admitting it was ill-prepared for the disaster
Information Minister Minendra Rijal told the BBC that "seminars and workshops probably are not that useful" in dealing with the crisis.
"And any projection has not taken into account... that so many people and so many districts would be affected," he said. "This is a calamity of enormous proportions."
