Woman's body found on cruise ship

Divers searching the wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise ship in Italy have found the body of a woman, bringing the death toll to 17.

The body was found in a submerged part of the vessel, which ran aground off the Tuscan coast with more than 4,200 people on board, on 13 January.

Another 15 people are still missing. The operation to start emptying fuel tanks has been halted because of bad weather.

Salvage crews are expecting to resume work early next week.
