23 front pages from Nepal’s devastating earthquake

The number of dead keeps rising after the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on Saturday. According to a report Monday morning from the BBC, that number is now up to 4,000. Here are 23 front pages from around the world that led with the news on Monday, from the Newseum and Kiosko. This is a huge collection, more than we’d normally gather, and there are a few reasons for that. Usually when a news event makes the front page, there are one or two photos that most newspapers use. Here, you’ll find images that zoom in to show people in Nepal and images that zoom out to show the devastation those people are now dealing with. And today, there are many of both. Also, it’s rare to find an event that makes front pages pretty much everywhere. Ferguson and Charlie Hebdo were two exceptions. I’ve also started a Twitter list of journalists reporting from Nepal. One warning before you proceed – some of these images are graphic.
