5 more bodies found in Concordia cruise wreck

GIGLIO, Italy — Search crews in Italy have found five more bodies in the wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise ship, which struck a reef off an Italian island in January.

The development today raises to 30 the number of bodies found. Two people remain missing and are presumed dead.

The Italian Civil Protection agency coordinating search operations said the bodies were all found in spaces between the hull and the seabed off the Tuscan island of Giglio. Since the Jan. 13 capsizing, the Concordia has been lying on its side, half submerged in water near Giglio’s port. It was not clear when the bodies would be removed.
