On the night of April 14th 1912, the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic and sank. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the tragedy, which means that the wreck now comes under the cover of the 2001 UNESCO Convention on the Protection of Underwater Cultural Heritage. UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova marked the occasion -by expressing concern about the destruction and looting of shipwrecks and underwater archaeological sites around the world.
