Several Dead as Cargo Ship Crashes into Tower at Italian Port

At least five people were killed after a cargo ship slammed into a port facility in the northern Italian coastal city of Genoa.

The port's 50-meter tall control tower was toppled in the accident, which occurred late Tuesday night as the Italian-flagged Jolly Nero was departing.

At least four other people were injured, while several others are unaccounted for, as the wreck occurred during a shift change.

Some of the missing are believed to be trapped inside the wrecked tower.
