Wrecked Costa Concordia arrives at final port of call

After nearly two and a half years, the cruise ship Costa Concordia finally completes its final voyage. In the early hours of Sunday, July 27, the wreck of the ship weighed anchor several miles from the shore of Genoa, Italy – the same city where, 9 years ago, the ship was built and launched. It was towed from the site off Giglio Island, where it capsized January 2012 causing the death of 32 people. It is set to be scrapped, with around 40,000-50,000 tons of steel to be reused.
