There's a lot of aid headed toward Nepal, but it's not getting there as fast as people would like.

The reason: There aren't enough runways.

The single runway has been closed several times for earthquake repairs. Also, there are limited places for planes to park. On many days, pilots circled for hours waiting for another plane to take off because there's no room to land.

Searing Memories Of Nazi Germany's First Concentration Camp

People stand beside the entrance gate of the former concentration camp in Dachau, southern Germany, on Wednesday. Dachau was opened in 1933, less than two months after Adolf Hitler became German chancellor, to house political prisoners. This week marks 70 years since U.S. forces liberated the camp.

American troops liberated Dachau concentration camp 70 years ago Wednesday. Scores of survivors and World War II veterans are gathering there to commemorate the event, the biggest ceremony of which will be on Sunday.
