Remains found near Costa Concordia wreck

With the wreck of the infamous cruise ship Costa Concordia finally uprighted last week, Italian officials overseeing the continuing search for bodies around the wreck say unidentified remains have been found.

Two people have been unaccounted for since the night the 951-foot ship sank off the Italian shore in a disaster that claimed the lives of 30 other people.

The ship’s captain, Francesco Schettino, is on trial over the disaster in January of last year, accused of manslaughter, causing the shipwreck and abandoning ship, but says he is being made a scapegoat for others' errors.
