New Zealand's prime minister, John Key, has dismissed claims that a man killed in February's earthquake was an Israeli spy.

A newspaper report had said Ofer Mizrahi was involved in a Mossad operation in the country. Questions were raised after five different passports were found on his body.

Mizrahi was among more than 180 people killed in an earthquake that hit the city of Christchurch.
