Christchurch falls silent for quake memorial

Thousands of people have attended a memorial service in Christchurch to pay tribute to the 185 people who died in the 6.3-magnitude earthquake in New Zealand one year ago.

The quake wrecked the centre of the city and is considered the country's worst natural disaster in 80 years.
