A large Italian cruise ship carrying more than 4,000 people ran aground on a sandbar off the west coast of Italy overnight, and at least three people are believed to have died.

Some 3,200 passengers and 1,023 crew on board the ship, the 290-metre-long Costa Concordia, were being evacuated by lifeboats, helicopters and other ships in the area, a statement from the Italian coastguard said.

The ship ran aground at about 10 p.m. (2100 GMT) near Giglio off the Tuscan coast.

Sad news...

Six reported dead

There are conflicting reports about the number of people who died - probably by jumping into the sea. First reports said 8 people, then six and latest were three. Let's hope the lower number is the correct one.
