The death toll from the 6.3-magnitude earthquake that demolished parts of Christchurch, New Zealand, has climbed to 145, police said Saturday.
Although the rescue and recovery operation has been boosted by personnel from China, the US and the UK., the hope for finding survivors of Tuesday’s devastating earthquake is fading.
The official death toll continues to climb, and searches continued for over 200 people who are still missing. Many of the people missing are feared dead.
