Italy Ship Aground
The Costa Concordia ship is sen through the windows of a sea front restaurant as it lies on its side on the Tuscan Island of Giglio, Italy, Monday, Sept. 16, 2013. Using a vast system of steel cables and pulleys, maritime engineers on Monday gingerly winched the massive hull of the Costa Concordia off the reef where the cruise ship capsized near an Italian island in January 2012. But progress in pulling the heavily listing luxury liner to an upright position was going much slower than expected. Delays meant the delicate operation — originally scheduled from dawn to dusk Monday — was not expected to be completed before Tuesday morning. (AP Photo/Andrew Medichini)
