(ROME) -- Survivors of the ill-fated Costa Concordia stood for a moment of silence in an Italian courtroom on Monday to mark the second anniversary of the shipwreck that left 32 people dead.
Joining the survivors were the judges overseeing the case against Capt. Francesco Schettino, who stands accused of manslaughter and abandoning ship. Schettino twice requested a plea bargain, which Italy’s state prosecutors rejected.
Meanwhile, on the island of Giglio, a memorial service will be held Monday as final preparations get underway to tow the ship from its coast in late June.
