Smoke billows from the Italian-flagged Norman Atlantic ferry that caught fire in the Adriatic Sea, Tuesday, Dec. 30, 2014. A blaze broke out on the car deck of the Norman Atlantic Sunday, Dec. 28, while the ferry was traveling from the Greek port of Patras to Ancona in Italy causing the death of at least 11 people. Italian and Greek helicopter rescue crews evacuated 427 people among passengers and crew members but Italian officials think the death toll could be much higher because of serious discrepancies in the ship’s manifest and confusion over how many people were aboard. “We cannot say how many people may be missing,” Italian Transport Minister Maurizio Lupi said at a news conference. The cause of the fire is under investigation. (AP Photo/Antonio Calanni)
