A sombre memorial at sea for the victims of the Costa Concordia. One year after the cruise ship capsized off Italy - killing 32 - survivors and relatives of the dead gather to remember the disaster. They packed onboard this boat - which circled the luxury liner - some tossing flowers into the sea. A memorial service was also held in the small town of Giglio, near where the Costa Concordia ran aground. Among those on hand for the ceremony were the relatives of a French man who died in the wreck. "It is tough, it is tough to see these images again," said one family member. "It is very difficult to take. There is a lot of pain." During the church service, a priest also offered a prayer for the families of the victims.
