GIGLIO ISLAND, Italy _ Survivors of the Costa Concordia are commemorating the second anniversary of the deadly grounding off Tuscany with a candle-lit march and a moment of silence in the courtroom where the captain is on trial.


Judges and survivors alike stood in silence Monday morning inside the theatre-turned courtroom where Capt. Francesco Schettino stands accused of manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning the Concordia before all passengers had evacuated. He says he's innocent.


The anniversary comes as residents of Giglio are finally seeing the end of the ordeal, with June set as the date to remove the wreck from the island's port. Giglio's commemorations include a Mass and evening candle-lit procession to mark the exact time that the Concordia slammed into a reef and capsized, killing 32 people.
