ROME, July 14. /ITAR-TASS/. The operation of raising the wrecked cruise liner Costa Concordia has started off the Italian island of Giglio, South African salvage master Nick Sloane, who leads the international refloating operation, said on Monday.
The salvage operation has kicked off at 6am local time (GMT+1).
