Two killed as giant waves hit Mediterranean cruise ship


Two people have been killed and six injured as giant waves slammed into a cruise ship in the Mediterranean.

A spokesman for owner Louis Cruises said three "abnormally high" waves broke windows in the front of the ship.

The Louis Majesty was heading to Genoa on a 12-day Mediterranean cruise but has now returned to Barcelona.
