At least three people are confirmed dead after a cruise ship carrying more than 4000 people ran aground off Italy.

The Costa Concordia was on a trip around the Mediterranean when it hit a reef near the Isola del Giglio.

The BBC reports that rescue teams have been going from cabin to cabin searching for survivors.

Most of the 3200 passengers and 1000 crew members were quickly evacuated, but coast guards struggled to rescue around 200 people stuck on board.
