An aftershock has rattled buildings in New Zealand's earthquake-ravaged city of Christchurch.

The US Geological Survey said the 5.5-magnitude quake struck 14 miles west of Christchurch at a depth of just under two miles.

The city has been rocked by scores of aftershocks since a devastating earthquake in February killed 181 people.

The latest tremor knocked items off shop shelves, but officials say there have been no reports of serious damage or injuries.
