Four cruise ship victims identified

Four more people were identified today after their bodies were found inside the Costa Concordia, a luxury cruise liner that capsized off the Tuscan coast last Friday.

A total of 11 people have died and 21 are still missing, including two Americans. The ship was carrying more than 4,200 passengers and crew members when the captain recklessly maneuvered the ship too close to shore and hit the rocky ocean floor.

Rescue efforts continue to search for the missing, but rough seas, poor weather conditions, and shifting of the boat has delayed divers. Government officials are concerned about the boat sinking and leaking 2,300 tonnes of fuel into the ocean.

The captain is facing charges of manslaughter, causing a ship wreck, and abandoning his ship.
