Costa Concordia Divers Find More Remains

Divers have recovered what could be more human remains from the sea off Tuscany where the Costa Concordia cruise liner sank last year.

The latest discovery was announced by Franco Gabrielli, the head of Italy’s civil protection agency, the organisation in charge of the wreck.

“Other remains have also been found and are currently undergoing DNA tests,” Mr Gabrielli said.

Mr Gabrielli announced last week that, in what was described as “almost a miracle”, human remains had been found following the refloating of the 114,500-ton vessel.

Thirty-two people in total died when the ship capsized after striking rocks off close to the island of Giglio, in January last year.

The bodies of 30 victims were recovered but the bodies of an Indian man and an Italian woman were not found.

Two cruise ship passengers missing after falling overboard off Australia

Authorities were conducting an air and marine search Thursday off Australia’s east coast for two cruise passengers who were believed to have fallen overboard the night before. The couple, Australian citizens from New South Wales state, were discovered missing Thursday morning after the Carnival Spirit docked at Sydney’s Circular Quay, at the end of a 10-day journey, said New South Wales Police Superintendent Mark Hutchings. He said surveillance camera footage showed that the couple — a 30-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman whose names have not been released — fell from the ship’s mid deck Wednesday night, when the ship was about 120 kilometers (65 nautical miles) off the coast of Forster, a city 300 kilometers (185 miles) north of Sydney.
