An official says rescuers have found three survivors in a mountainous village in Nepal, eight days since the earthquake.

Surya Prasad Upadhaya, a government administrator, says two men and a woman were pulled out Sunday from near Syauli village. They have been taken to a nearby military hospital for treatment.

Other details are not immediately known.

The district is the worst hit by the magnitude-7.8 earthquake with the highest number of casualties.

It is located about 60 kilometers (35 miles) west of the capital, Kathmandu.
