Cruise passengers slept on deck to avoid heat


Passengers of the stricken cruise ship the Costa Allegra have described how they did not have enough food and slept on deck to avoid intense heat.

The ship lost all power after a fire on board on Monday and was towed into port in the Seychelles capital, Victoria.

It is from the same fleet as the Costa Concordia, which sank off the Italian coast in January, killing 32 people.
