    A minute silence today will mark 10 years since the Christchurch earthquake



    It struck at 12.51 in the afternoon, at a magnitude of 6.2 - 10 kilometres south-east of the city and just five kilometres deep

    One hundred and 85 people from more than 20 countries died - with more than half perishing in the CTV building.

    The city will come together to reflect at 12.51pm
