Divers recover a 17th body from Concordia, weather delays salvage

Divers searching the Costa Concordia wreck on Saturday recovered the body of a woman, bringing the confirmed death toll to 17, Reuters and other news agencies report from Giglio, Italy. Fifteen people are still missing.

Meanwhile, plans to begin pumping fuel from the ship were suspended due to bad weather.

A spokesman for SMIT, the salvager, told reporters the operation may be held up for several days, with bad weather forecast to last until Tuesday, Reuters said.
