Video has been released of frightened passengers evacuating the damaged Costa Concordia luxury cruise ship off the coast of Italy this weekend.

Passengers are shown to be screaming in fear as they wait for lifeboats to be lowered.

Ship captain Francesco Schettino was arrested on Saturday, accused of manslaughter and abandoning the ship before all passengers were evacuated.

Italian rescue crews suspended search efforts Monday to locate any more survivors. Six people have been found dead, and 16 of the 4,200 people on board are still missing.
