New Zealand Remembers One Week On From Quake Disaster
L to R, Lady Susan Satyanand, Governor-General Anand Satyanand and Lockwood Smith sing the national anthem as New Zealand holds two minutes' silence at 12.51pm local time to mark the time of last week's Christchurch earthquake, at XXX on March 1, 2011 in Wellington, New Zealand. The death toll from the earthquake has risen to 148 and the hope for finding survivors is fading as rescuers search through debris for over 200 still missing following the quake that struck Christchurch on February 22. The quake, which was an aftershock of a 7.1 magnitude quake that struck the South Island city on September 4, 2010, has seen damage and fatalities far exceeding those of the original.
