Costa Concordia after 2.5 years - level 2
Police released underwater video which shows the inside of the wreck of the Costa Concordia.
The Costa Concordia was a large ship which ran aground and overturned 2.5 years ago. Thirty-two people died.
People will move the ship away from the Italian island. The ship will be broken up for scrap metal. The captain is on trial for manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and leaving a ship.
Difficult words: run aground (get stuck in the ground), scrap metal (metal which is recycled), manslaughter (killing somebody by not doing what you were supposed to do).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
