After being raised from the sea bed earlier this month, the wrecked Italian cruise ship, Costa Concordia, has finally been towed to Genoa for scrapping.


Genoa was the port where the cruise ship was built and launched amid celebrations in January 2012.

The maritime salvage operation to rescue the ship's remains was one of the biggest ever and has been going on for the last two years. When it arrived at the port to the sound of ships' horns blaring, Prime Minister Matteo Renzi remarked that the arrival will mark an end to the tragedy that claimed several people's lives, reported the BBC.

The Costa Concordia hit a reef off the Italian island of Giglio two years ago and capsized, killing 32 people. The remains of an Indian waiter, Russel Rebello, have not been found yet, the report added.
