New Zealand city rattled by 5.0-magnitude quake

WELLINGTON: The earthquake-devastated New Zealand city of Christchurch was rattled on Monday by a 5.0-magnitude tremor, geologists said, although there were no immediate reports of damage. The quake, which struck at a relatively shallow depth of 19 kilometres, around 18 kilometres east of Christchurch at 5:45 am on Monday (1645 GMT), according to the US Geological Survey. Christchurch, New Zealand's second most populous city, was battered by a powerful 6.3-magnitude earthquake in February last year that left 181 people dead and destroyed much of its centre. The city has been hit by a series of strong aftershocks since causing fear among residents and further damage to property. New Zealand sits on the so-called "Ring of Fire", the boundary of the Australian and Pacific tectonic plates, and experiences up to 15,000 tremors a year.
