Christchurch Police said Thursday that up to 120 bodies may still lie trapped in the tangled concrete and steel that was the Canterbury Television building, where dozens of students from Japan, Thailand and other Asian countries were believed buried when an English-language school collapsed along with other offices.

Rescuers broadened their search of collapsed buildings in New Zealand's  quake-shattered city of Christchurch, as hopes faded of finding any more survivors in the hardest-hit office blocks downtown.
