Eight Shipwreck Victims Identified

Italian officials have identified eight of the 12 victims of the Costa Concordia disaster. Four of the dead were French, one was Italian, one Hungarian, one Spanish, and one German. There are no Americans on the list, but there are more than 20 people still missing. Hope of finding any more survivors inside the wreckage is fading, although crews resumed rescue efforts Sunday after halting them again overnight. The sunken ship is moving frequently and in danger of tipping into deeper waters off the coast of the Italian island of Giglio. It’s been more than a week since the ship ran aground.
