Costa Concordia nears Italian port to be broken up for scrap

GENOA Italy (Reuters) - The wreck of the Costa Concordia arrived on Sunday off the northern Italian city of Genoa where it will be broken up for scrap, two-and-a-half years after the cruise liner ran aground and sank near the Tuscan island of Giglio, killing 32 people. After a four-day voyage from Giglio of almost 200 miles, port pilots began manoeuvering into position the 114,500-tonne hulk, which was lifted off the rocks and refloated last week after a complex operation that required months of preparation. With seas calm but a 10-15 knot northerly wind blowing, the ship remained around a mile offshore and final docking is expected in the afternoon, Franco Gabrielli, head of Italy's Civil Protection Authority, told reporters #United States #India #Business #Russia #markets #Italy #italian #opinion

Wrecked Concordia finally headed for scrapyard after massive salvage operation

GIGLIO ISLAND Italy (Reuters) - The rusty hulk of the Costa Concordia cruise liner began its journey to the scrapyard on Wednesday after a two-year salvage operation off the Italian island where it capsized two years ago, killing 32 people. Boats sounded horns and church bells rang as a tug boat slowly pulled the wreck of the liner, which was around two-and-a half times the size of the Titanic, away from the island of Giglio, accompanied by a convoy of 14 vessels. #facebook #China #Business #France #Arabic #Russia #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment #Mexico #italian

Italy says 19 boat migrants die, thousands rescued this week

ROME (Reuters) - Nineteen people died trying to reach Italy on a boat packed with hundreds of migrants, probably poisoned by carbon monoxide fumes from its engines, said the Italian Navy on Saturday, which has rescued more than 4,000 migrants in the last three days. Eighteen bodies were found in the hold of the boat, said a navy spokesman, along with three very ill men who were rushed to the Italian island of Lampedusa but one died en route #facebook #India #China #Technology #France #Russia #markets #Italy #Latin America #Mexico #Ukraine #italian

Three European engineers believed kidnapped in Libya - officials

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Three Europeans working for an Italian construction company have probably been kidnapped in Libya, officials from the Libyan and Italian governments said on Sunday. Libya has seen a rise in kidnappings of diplomats, foreigners and Libyans, with a fractious government and parliament unable to control militias who helped oust Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. A car used by Italian, Macedonian and Bosnian engineers was found abandoned in the town of Zuwara, west of the capital Tripoli, an official in the local town council told Reuters. #facebook #United States #India #China #markets #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #italian

With our flawed justice system, how can you blame Italian marines?

Our record of enforcing the law and upholding it, is poor and a humiliating and a very public demonstration of it is on view every other day. We have all of us seen police do unlawful things like thrashing offenders, even children, rather than proceed per law. #Italian Marines #OnOurMinds #Indian law #Ram Singh #Indian Justice Sysytem
