Navy footage of stricken Costa ship


Footage released by the Indian Navy of the stricken Costa Allegra cruise ship shows calm seas, an upright ship, and passengers on the upper decks.

The Costa Allegra, which has been drifting in the Indian ocean after a power failure and has 1,000 people on board, is now being towed to the Seychelles.

The ship is at the southern end of the seas that are vulnerable to attacks by Somali pirates, and Indian Navy aircraft have been deployed to watch over the ship.
