The operation to start emptying fuel tanks of the Costa Concordia cruise ship in Italy has been halted because of bad weather.

Salvage crews are expecting to resume work early next week.

Dutch salvage company SMIT has withdrawn a barge that had been placed alongside the hulk of the Costa Concordia.
