Tourists relax on rocks in front of the Costa Concordia wreckage on the Giglio Island, Italy, Thursday, July 12, 2012. Works have begun to remove the tons of rocky reef embedded into the Concordia cruise ship's hull, a first step in plans to eventually tow the wreck away from the island, where it ran aground last January. The whole removal process could take as long as a year. In a broadcast interview Tuesday, Concordia's captain Francesco Schettino described the collision as a "banal accident" in which "destiny" played a role. (AP Photo/Gregorio Borgia) less
