An Italian cruise ship drifting in the Indian Ocean with more than 1,000 people on board following a power failure, has been taken in tow.
A French fishing vessel is taking the Costa Allegra to a nearby island where passengers will disembark before being transferred to the Seychelles.
The BBC spoke to Jane Thomas, whose daughter Rebecca is working on the Costa Allegra.
