Italian prosecutors called on Monday for judges to show "no pity" to Francesco Schettino, the captain of the doomed Costa Concordia, demanding he serve 26 years and three months in jail for a shipwreck which killed 32 people.

"God have pity on Schettino, because we cannot have any," prosecutor Stefano Pizza said in his summing up speech, which accused the man dubbed "Captain Coward" by the media of multiple manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning ship.
