Inside the Costa Concordia after 2 years

23 July 2014 / All photos: ANP /

Italian police have released footage showing the underwater interior of wrecked cruise ship Costa Concordia. The wrecked ship is now being towed to the port of Genoa for scrapping after a two-year salvage operation.

Its removal is one of the biggest ever maritime salvage operations.

The Concordia struck a reef off the Italian island of Giglio in January 2012 and capsized, killing 32 people.
