Video: Nepal earthquake - Gurkhas praise British response


Gurkhas marched in London to remember those who have sacrificed their lives for Britain over the last 200 years. Two hundred soldiers marched from Wellington Barracks past Buckingham Palace and along the Mall before arriving at the Gurkha memorial statue in Whitehall. It was a particularly poignant event as the death toll continues to rise in their homeland Nepal following the devastating earthquake. Members of the Nepalese and Gurkha community in the UK have spoken of their sense of helplessness at watching heart-wrenching images on television following the disaster, which has claimed more than 5,000 lives
