Deaths reported as ship hits Genoa port control tower.


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-22444421


The ship was manoeuvring out of the port with the help of tugboats in calm conditions, on its way to Naples, reports said.
'Utterly shocked'

The cause of the crash was not immediately clear, but Genoa's Il Secolo XIX newspaper quoted the Jolly Nero's captain as saying that two engines appeared to have failed and "we lost control of the ship".

The head of the Genoa Port Authority, Luigi Merlo, told the newspaper: "It's very difficult to explain how this could have happened because the ship should not have been where it was."

He described conditions in the port at the time of the crash as "perfect"

Martin,

It reported 'one of the Jolly Nero's Pilots' saying that.

There was another bit saying
Quote
The ship's captain is being investigated by prosecutors with a view to possible manslaughter charges.

Although I thought that the ship is under the control of the harbour pilot until it is clear of the port {:-{   (yeah, I know that ultimately the buck stops at the ships captain)
