Cruise Liner Crashes




MARGATE, England -- A cruise liner carrying 2,400 passengers and crew collided with a cargo ship early Tuesday in the English Channel, coast guard officials said.


At least three of the 1,726 passengers aboard the Norwegian Dream cruise ship suffered minor injuries from the collision, but remained on board until the ship had docked in Dover, 64 kilometers from the scene of the accident.


The liner, which had been on the last leg of a 13-day cruise of the Scandinavian capitals, had been bound for Dover and pulled into the port on schedule, Norwegian Cruise Line president Geir Aune said.
