The Nepali government has declared Kathmandu Valley a crisis zone in order to speed up demolitions of potentially dangerous buildings after the April earthquake, which damaged 73,000 houses.

Yet while buildings have been condemned, the government says it is the responsibility of property owners to tear them down.

Many potentially dangerous structures have been left standing, raising concern among local communities.
