    WELLINGTON A strong earthquake killed at least 65 people in New Zealand's second-biggest city of Christchurch with more casualties expected as desperate rescuers picked through rubble to find people trapped in toppled buildings.

    It was the second quake to hit the city in five months.

    "We may well be witnessing New Zealand's darkest day...The death toll I have at the moment is 65 and that may rise," New Zealand Prime Minister John Key told local TV.

    Such a pretty, pleasant city. I'm so sad it keeps getting walloped like this.
