Costa Allegra: Relief as cruise ship docks in Seychelles

Passengers of the stricken cruise ship the Costa Allegra are back on dry land after three days drifting without power in the Indian Ocean.

The ship lost all power after a fire on board on Monday and was towed into port in the Seychelles capital, Victoria.

It is from the same fleet as the Costa Concordia, which sank off the Italian coast in January, killing 32 people.

Italian investigators were waiting, when the ship docked to question the crew.

The BBC's Katy Watson reports from the Seychelles.
