WELLINGTON Aug 16 (Reuters) - The New Zealand dollar hit a two-month high against the U.S. dollar on Friday, capitalising on a sudden, broad sell-off in the U.S. currency.

The kiwi rose around 0.5 percent on the day to $0.8113, its strongest level since mid-June, amid intensifying debate about when the U.S. Federal Reserve would start to trim its massive bond-buying stimulus. It also rose against the Australian dollar, the yen and other currencies.
