Sunken Cruise Ship Captain On Trial In Italy
GROSSETO, Italy (AP) — The trial of the captain of a shipwrecked Italian cruise liner has begun in a theater converted into a courtroom in Tuscany. Francesco Schettino (frahn-CHEHS'-koh skeh-TEE'-noh) is charged with multiple manslaughter, abandoning ship and causing last year's shipwreck of the Costa Concordia. He says he's innocent. The judge adjourned the trial until next week because of a lawyers' strike.
