The Costa Concordia to be refloated, scrapped

The owners of the Costa Concordia cruise liner that hit rocks off the coast of Tuscany last January have announced to the media that they will refloat the ship in July and tow it to port for scrapping.

The Costa Concordia disaster claimed 32 lives. There were some 4,000 people on board, including 111 Russian tourists.
