GIGLIO, September 17 (Itar-Tass) - The operation to raise the wrecked Costa Concordia cruise liner was completed on Tuesday, the head of Italy's Civil Protection Authority, Franco Gabrielli, said after the 19-hour-long operation at the Italian island of Giglio.
The ship has been settled onto its platform, he said.
The Concordia, a 290-metre-long liner carrying more than 4,000 passengers and crew capsized and sank with the loss of 32 lives on January 13, 2012 after it struck rocks at Giglio.
The ship remained half-submerged on a rock shelf ever since.
