Cargo Ship Smashes into Tower at Genoa Port

Nine people may be dead


Nine people are feared dead after a container ship smashed into a control tower in the Italian port of Genoa in a night-time accident that left several missing and revived painful memories in Italy of a deadly cruise ship disaster last year.

Around 14 people were in the 50-metre high glass-topped tower when it was hit by the ship's stern as it ploughed into the dock.
