ROME (AP) - Divers searching the capsized Costa Concordia have found what appears to be four more bodies on the cruise ship.
The civil protection agency, which is monitoring the operation, said the bodies were found Wednesday but it will take some time before they are recovered.
The Concordia struck a reef near the Tuscan island of Giglio on Jan. 13 and capsized. Seventeen bodies from the ship have been found, but 15 people are still listed as missing.
Italian news reports said the body of a 5-year-old Italian girl was among those found. Dayana Arlotti was on the cruise with her father and his girlfriend. They survived the tragedy.
The reports cited unidentified members of the search team. The civil protection agency said it would neither confirm nor deny the reports.
