    A political storm has stalled the rebuilding of Kathmandu's oldest building, Kasthamandap.

    The 12th-century structure collapsed during a powerful earthquake in 2015.

    Locals want it restored, but they are worried that Nepali law will mean the project will go to the lowest bidder, and result in shoddy work.
