New Zealand moves from 'rescue to recovery'

New Zealand rescuers say they are continuing to search for survivors in the aftermath of Tuesday's powerful earthquake in Christchurch.

But Prime Minister John Key has said people should prepare for more bad news and the focus of efforts would be on recovery rather than rescue.

At least 98 people have been killed, but 226 others are missing - up to 120 of them under one collapsed building.
