ATHENS, Greece (AP) -
 
The captain of the cruise ship which sank off the coast of an Aegean Sea island sending more than 1,500 people on board into rescue boats and leaving two people unaccounted for was charged on Saturday with "causing a shipwreck through negligence". The Sea Diamond sank soon after slamming into a well charted reef on Thursday inside Santorini's sea filled volcanic crater.
 
 
At the time of the crash the ship had been a few kilometers away from the dock under the spectacular cliffs that make Santorini one of Greece's top tourist destinations. The Sea Diamond was carrying 1,154 passengers and 391 crew members.

The damaged vessel was quickly evacuated in a 3 hour operation, but it failed to find Jean-Christophe Allain, 45, and his 16 year old daughter, Maud, both from the Doue la Fontaine state in western France.
 
A 3 day search and rescue has failed to find them with officials stating that a robot submarine would investigate the wreck, which is lying under 330 feet of water, in the following weeks. The panicked evacuation soon brought to the fore memories of the September 2000 Express Samina ferry shipwreck of the island of Paros, killing 80 people. Yiannis Evangelou, the head of Greece's association of travel and tourist agencies, stated that the Sea Diamond's rescue operation, which he watched from a nearby ferry, was ``exemplary.''

The spokesman for the Cyprus based operator, Louis Cruise lines, read out a statement saying that the company was working closely with Greek investigators.

The Sea Diamond, a 21 year old ship sank at the end of its four day cruise, which included visits to Rhodes, Patios, Crete and Mykonos islands. Officials at the Greek Tourism board went into damage control to lessen the impact on its industry which accounts for a staggering 18 percent of its GDP.
 
``{{quotation|"Whoever is responsible for this will be held accountable in the strictest way,'' Tourism Minister Fanny Palli Petralia said. ``Greece is a major tourism destination, and incidents like this must not be allowed to occur. ... Authorities handled the rescue very well.'' "}}
