In this frame made from APTN video of Monday, July 8, 2013 made available Tuesday July 9, people sunbathe on the rocks as the wreckage of the Costa Concordia cruise ship is seen in the background, on the Tuscan island of Giglio. The trial of the captain of the shipwrecked Costa Concordia cruise liner began Tuesday in a theater converted into a courtroom in Grosseto, Italy, to accommodate all the survivors and relatives of the 32 victims who want to see justice carried out in the 2012 tragedy. The sole defendant, Schettino, made no comment to reporters as he arrived for his trial on charges of multiple manslaughter, abandoning ship and causing the shipwreck near the island of Giglio. His lawyer, Domenico Pepe, told reporters that, as expected, the judge was postponing the hearing though due to an eight-day nationwide lawyers' strike. Schettino has denied wrongdoing.
