Costa Concordia: Rescued passengers return home

Eyewitness accounts emerging from crew and passengers on the Costa Concordia are adding to pressure on the Italian Captain of the wrecked cruise ship.

They say Captain Francesco Schettino and other senior crew members let down all on board last Friday evening.

The Captain is under house arrest and has reportedly admitted misjudging its route.

He is accused of manslaughter and abandoning ship, which he denies. Twenty people are still missing as stormy weather now threatens the wreck.
