Five people have been found guilty of manslaughter after the sinking of the Costa Concordia in January 2012.

Roberto Ferraini, director of the crisis unit; cabin service director Manrico Giampedroni; helmsman Jacob Rusli Bin; and officers Ciro Ambrosio and Silvia Coronica were all convicted by an Italian court.

Their sentences range from 18 to 34 months after plea bargains were agreed.
