A minute-long earthquake has shaken New Zealand, halting trains and damaging Wellington's parliament building.
The 6.5-magnitude tremor was centred 35 miles (57 km) off the coast south of the capital at a depth of 6.3 miles, said the US Geological Survey.
But while some structural damage and power cuts were reported, officials said there was no risk of a tsunami.
