Italian port town seeks payback for Concordia wreck

Italian officials are seeking more than $275 million in damages from a cruise line company after two popular tourist regions suffered a major blow following the January 2012 Costa Concordia disaster.

The Costa Concordia was carrying more than 4,000 passengers and crew when it struck rocks off the Tuscan island of Giglio and capsized, killing 32 people. 

The ship remained partially submerged near the port of the vacation island for more than two years before being raised and towed away this year in one of the largest and most complex maritime salvages ever completed.
