NZ still searches for quake missing but hopes are fading

Hopes of finding any more survivors of the devastating earthquake that hit Christchurch in New Zealand on 22 February are fading.

The death toll is now 98, and more than 200 people are missing.

The country's Prime Minister John Key says emergency teams are now focusing on recovering bodies.

One of the worst affected buildings is Canterbury TV, where it's feared as many as 120 bodies may be buried.

From Christchurch, TVNZ's Kim Vinnell reports.
