Costa Concordia wreck captain grilled for first time in trial
Grosseto, Italy (CNN) -- Francesco Schettino, captain of the wreckeda Costa Concordia cruise ship, faced questions over the change of course that led to the sinking as he took the stand for the first time Tuesday in a multiple manslaughter trial. (CNN) -- More than 1.7 million Syrian refugees will face a food shortage due to a "funding crisis," the United Nations World Food Program said Monday.
The WFP had to suspend its program providing food vouchers, which refugees use in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq, and Egypt, the agency said.
The program needs $64 million "immediately," it said, adding that the repercussions of suspending the vouchers "will be disastrous."
