An Italian cruise ship with more than 1,000 people on board is without power in the Indian Ocean following a fire.
The Costa Allegra is adrift more than 200 miles south west of the Seychelles, near Alphonse Island.
Costa Cruises said in a statement that the fire broke out in the electric generator room.
Commander Cosimo Nicastro, from the Italian Coastguard, told the BBC there had been no casualties.
