(ANSA) - Giglio Island, July 13 - Salvage teams on Friday
successfully removed the first part of a rock reef that gashed
the side of the Costa Concordia cruise ship off the Tuscan
island of Giglio, sinking it in January.
Workers cheered and boats sounded their horns as the
operation was completed on the six-month anniversary of the
accident that left 32 dead in one of Italy's worst maritime
disasters since the Second World War.
The piece of rock will remain on Giglio, where it may form
part of a memorial for the victims.
The remaining rock will be sectioned into two parts, which
will be separately removed over the next few days.
Overall removal operations, which involve refloating the
giant liner, are expected to take up to a year to complete.
