A massive underground fault line which ruptured last year, causing a killer earthquake in Nepal, is still under tremendous strain underneath Kathmandu, a study said Monday.This meant another major tremor could happen in an area home to more than a million people within years or decades rather than the centuries that typically elapse between quakes, researchers wrote in the journal Nature Geoscience.The study is the latest to warn of the risk of another major quake around Nepal's Gorkha district, near the epicenter of a 7.8-magnitude tremor on April 25 -- the worst in Nepal in more than 80 years.
