The death toll from the shipwreck off the Tuscan island of Giglio north of Rome has risen to 11, following the discovery of a further five bodies during the afternoon of 17 January, four days after the Costa Concordia ran aground some 150-m from shore.

The search for a further 23 people was suspended on 18 January because of a further shift in the position of the wreck, making it dangerous for the rescue teams to continue work.

On 17 January the prefecture of Grosseto on the Italian mainland released the names of the 17 women and 11 men still unaccounted for, which include the five bodies found on 17 January
