12 die in cruise ship mishap

Saint-Nazaire (France), Nov. 15 (Reuters): Twelve people died today when a dockside gangway to the world’s biggest and most expensive cruise ship, the Queen Mary 2, collapsed at Saint-Nazaire in western France, a shipyard official said.

As up to 50 visitors were walking onto the liner across a gangway, the structure collapsed under them, injuring about 32 people, 12 of them seriously, Philippe Kasse said.
