The sunsets over the cruise liner Costa Concordia aground in front of the harbour of Isola del Giglio after hitting underwater rocks on Jan. 13.

The Italian Coast Guard released several underwater photos today that were shot on Jan. 13 of the Costa Concordia, the cruise ship that ran aground off the Isola del Giglio harbour in Italy.

The Concordia's captain, Francesco Schettino, was arrested and jailed early Saturday, a few hours after Friday's night shipwreck. Scettino made an unauthorized deviation from the programmed course, a blunder that led to its deadly crash against a reef, the ship's Italian owner said Monday.
