1st big group of victims of ferry fire arrives on dry land
ATHENS, Greece - A cargo ship with 49 survivors of a Greek ferry that caught fire in the Adriatic Sea has arrived in the Italian port of Bari, the first big group of victims to reach land.
The Spirit of Piraeus docked just after 0630 GMT. Passengers and crew watched from the decks loaded with cargo containers.
The ship came ashore after first trying to dock overnight down the coast in Brindisi. Rough seas forced a change in plans.
More than 200 more passengers and crew remain stranded aboard the smoke-filled ferry adrift between Italy and Albania.
