Another body found in cruise disaster

A sixth body has been discovered in the wreck of the cruise liner which capzied off the coast of Italy on Friday night.



Confusion remains over the number thought to be missing but rescuers are still searching thousands of cabins for about 15 people who are unaccounted for. The painstaking task of checking through the multi- story floating resort is made all the more difficult by the angle of the vessel and the fear it could start to move off the shifting sands. Three survivors were found on Sunday including the chief purser who was winched off the wreck with a broken leg. While the search continues, Dutch salvage experts have also been inspecting the ship. According to them the fuel tanks have not been ruptured, reducing fears of an oil spill in the pristine waters.
