Video footage released by Italian authorities reveals the scale of the damage after a container ship smashed into a control tower at Genoa port. By late on Wednesday it was confirmed seven people lost their lives. Search teams were still looking for two more still missing. Another four have been injured, some seriously. The Jolly Nero container ship crashed into the tower on Tuesday night at it was leaving the port. Weather conditions were calm. Investigators are focussing on the possibility of engine failure.
