Italian experts went aboard "Norman Atlantic" on Sunday for the third time, along with firefighters who are trying to put out new blazes caused by oxygen that entered in areas of the ship after it was towed to Brindisi.
The action follows a similar effort on Saturday when the team was again unable to open the garage door because of some ongoing fires. Prosecutor Ettore Cardinali, who is coordinating the investigation, stayed on the burned ship for about five hours. "We’re still at a phase of secondary importance," he told reporters after he disembarked, adding that high temperatures don’t allow access to all the areas of the ship.
Cardinali was not among the team who went aboard "Norman Atlantic" on Sunday but told representatives of the Greek embassy in Rome he will ask the help of Greek authorities in order to shed some light in the causes of the tragic incident and find who is responsible.
