Cruise captain charged

The week's news at a glance.

Santorini, Greece

The captain of a cruise ship that sank in the Aegean Sea last week has been charged with negligence, along with five crew members. “Most definitely there was human error,” said Greek Merchant Marine Minister Manolis Kefaloyiannis. The Sea Diamond crashed into well-marked rocks off of Santorini as it was coming in to dock. Some 1,600 passengers and crew clambered down rope ladders into lifeboats. But two passengers, a French man and his teenage daughter, are missing, and officials fear that they drowned in their cabin. Greek officials said they have contained the fuel leaking from the ship, which contaminated three miles of the Santorini coast.
