New Zealand quake turns student paradise into nightmare

Via Reuters :

" The smoking ruin of a six-storey building may be all that remained on Wednesday of the dreams of dozens of Asian students who had travelled to New Zealand to learn English.

Reduced to a heap of broken masonry and smouldering fires by the quake in Christchurch, it was home to one of many small English-language schools dotted around the picturesque city.

"How was this allowed to happen?" said Indian student Jeewan, still raw with anger after watching rescuers abandon the search of his old school."
