New Zealand earthquake

Image 6 of 36


Two police officers walk past a fallen statue in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Feb. 24, while doing a patrol.

They picked gingerly through the ruins, poking heat-seeking cameras into gaps between tumbles of bricks and sending sniffer dogs over concrete slabs.
