A major search operation resumed Thursday for a US military helicopter that disappeared with eight people on board while delivering aid to earthquake victims in Nepal, where a second major tremor has killed dozens and brought fresh misery.The search operation has diverted resources urgently needed to help victims of the 7.3-magnitude quake that hit on Tuesday, triggering major landslides and bringing down buildings weakened in the first disaster on April 25 .That quake killed more than 8,000 people and destroyed nearly 300,000 homes across the impoverished country. With many of the worst-affected areas inaccessible by road, more than 1,400 people have been airlifted from quake-hit areas, most of them by Nepalese troops.
