Search continues as 13th body found on Costa Concordia

Divers have found the body of a woman in the wreck of the cruise ship Costa Concordia, bringing the number of people confirmed dead to 13.

Italian fire service divers found the body on deck seven of the vessel, about 10m below the water line, Italy's Civil Protection Authority said.

Rescue workers are still looking for 20 people who are believed to be missing.

The vessel sank on 13 January after hitting rocks near the island of Giglio, off Tuscany.

The woman who has now been found was wearing a life-jacket, officials say. Her body is being removed from the ship.
