Suspension of rescue efforts as ship shifts again

The search of the Costa Concordia cruise ship has been suspended after the capsized vessel slipped, the Italian coast guard says.

Officials are hoping to begin salvage work soon, including pumping oil off the wreck, as hopes fade of finding any more survivors.

Twenty-four people are missing, and 11 confirmed dead, after the huge ship crashed into rocks on Friday.

There are fears the vessel might slip into deeper water off the Tuscan coast.
