Three people died and about 70 were missing after an Italian cruise ship with more than 4,000 people on board ran aground and keeled over, sparking scenes of panic. The Costa Concordia was on a trip around the Mediterranean when it apparently hit a reef near the island of Giglio on Friday, only a few hours into its voyage, as passengers were sitting down for dinner.

The owner of the luxury liner that ran aground off the coast of Italy, killing at least six people, said its captain had made "errors of judgment" as the search continued for the missing. "It seems that the commander made errors of judgement that had serious consequences," said a statement from the liner's owner Costa Crociere, referring to Captain Francesco Schettino. "The route followed by the ship was not the right one," Verusio said, accusing Schettino of having "approached Giglio island in a very clumsy manner."

View of the wrecked cruise liner Costa Concordia on January 16, 2012, in the harbour of the Tuscan island of Giglio after it ran aground after hitting underwater rocks on January 13. Pier Luigi Foschi, head of the Costa Crociere line, said the company had commissioned several firms to look at the best way to salvage the 114,500-tonne vessel lying on its side. The 290-metre (950-feet) long Costa Crociere, which is 17 decks high, has a large gash in its hull from running on to rocks before it capsized on Friday night. Coastguards said the half-submerged giant ship had now stabilised as weather conditions off the Tuscan coast improved but added that there was still a risk the hulk could slip off a rocky shelf into the open sea and sink entirely.
