Todt unhurt in Nepal earthquake

FIA president Jean Todt has emerged unscathed from a massive earthquake that killed thousands in Nepal on Saturday.

The Frenchman was heading the governing body's Asia-Pacific Regional Congress in the capital Kathmandu when the 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck.

"All members of the FIA party and congress delegates are safe and accounted for," said the FIA in a statement.

Italy's Autosprint said that while the hotel that hosted the summit was damaged it otherwise withstood the impact, and Todt and his party faced "many obstacles to be able to leave" the devastated region.
