Fuel pumped from Costa Concordia
Posted Tue, 24 Jan 2012
As the search for guests on board the sunken Costa Concordia continues, experts are preparing to pump fuel from the cruise ship.
Fuel is to be pumped from the ship after it was confirmed the wreck does not risk falling to a lower seabed. The fuel removal will take place alongside the search, which the national civil protection agency says will continue "as long as it is possible to inspect whatever can be inspected".
Some 17 are known missing, but it has emerged that unregistered guests were on board the cruise ship, meaning the number could increase.
Two further bodies, both women, were found in the ship's internet cafe, taking the total death toll to 15.
