Costa Concordia wreckage is slowly pulled out

  • The wreckage of the Costa Concordia, an Italian cruise ship that capsized in January 2012, is being raised from beneath the sea, according to media reports. It is described as one of the most complex operations of its kind in maritime history. 

    The operation could take up to a week after which the ship will be taken to port Genoa to be scrapped. 

    The Concordia sank after hitting a reef near Giglio island of Italy, resulting in 32 deaths.
