Three Russian crewmembers were injured when a luxury cruise ship ran aground near the coast of Tuscany late Friday, killing at least three people and forcing the evacuation of over 4,000, the head of Russia’s Federal Tourism Agency said on Sunday.

“Three Russian crewmembers suffered in the shipwreck. Two of them are in hospital. We have no other information,” Oleg Moseyev said.

The Costa Concordia liner with over 4,200 passengers on board, ran aground off the Isola del Giglio island. At least three people - two French passengers and a crewmember from Peru - were killed and 67 were injured.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With at least 40 passengers still unaccounted for, divers had to suspend the search after dark and resumed it at dawn.

Divers have also located the ship’s voice recorder, which investigators believe will help to establish the cause of the deadly shipwreck.

Italian prosecutors said they detained Captain Francesco Schettino and First Mate Ciro Ambrosio. They are suspected of manslaughter and abandoning ship in distress.

Schettino was interviewed for several hours before being taken to a pretrial detention facility. He said that the Costa Concordia hit reefs that were not marked on the navigation map.
