Search ends for bodies in submerged areas of Concordia
Italian authorities have called off the search for bodies in the submerged areas of Costa Concordia, Reuters reports. The news service said officials deemed conditions are no longer safe for divers.

Reuters said the search in other sections of the ship and in waters around the vessel will continue.

Seventeen bodies have been recovered since Costa Concordia capsized off Giglio island on Jan. 13. Fifteen people are still missing.
