The shipwrecked Costa Concordia cruiser was pulled away by tugboats on Monday from Italy’s Genoa harbor to finally be demolished. The ship hit rocks and partially capsized off the Italian island of Giglio in January 2012 in an accident that killed 32 people. It took 30 months to artificially refloat the vessel and tow it to a port for dismantling.
