    FILE - In this Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013 file photo, Captain Francesco Schettino waits for the arrival of the judges in the court room of the converted Teatro Moderno theater at the end of a pause of his trial, in Grosseto, Italy. A Rome university professor is facing a disciplinary hearing after inviting the captain of the shipwrecked Costa Concordia cruise liner to lecture students on emergency procedures. The dean of Rome's Sapienza University, Luigi Frati, on Wednesday, Aug. 6, 2014, expressed anger at a professor's decision to invite Capt. Francesco Schettino to give a seminar, calling it an "inappropriate and unworthy choice." Italy's education minister called the news "disconcerting." The Florence daily La Nazione reported that Schettino gave a two-hour lecture to criminal science masters candidates last month, including reference to panic management. Schettino is being tried for manslaughter, causing the shipwreck and abandoning ship over the January 2012 capsize of the Concordia, in which 32 people died.

Italian authorities say they found bone fragments during a search of the shipwrecked Costa Concordia when the ship was brought to port for scrapping.

Italy's civil protection agency said Wednesday it's not clear if the remains belong to the one person still unaccounted for from the disaster: Indian waiter Russel Rebello.

Rebello was one of 32 people who died when the Concordia struck a reef off Tuscany and capsized Jan. 13, 2012. The search for his remains resumed after the Concordia was towed last month to Genoa's port where it will be taken apart.

Civil protection officials said the fragments might also belong to Italian passenger Maria Grazia Trecarichi, whose partial, mutilated remains were recovered a few months ago.
