Two more bodies recovered from cruise ship wreckage

GIGLIO, ITALY (WFLX)- Divers have recovered two more bodies from the wreckage of the Costa Concordia off the Italian Coast. 

Monday crews were blasting new holes into the ship to make access easier for searchers.

Later, divers pulled the bodies of two women from the wreckage.

The discovery raises the death toll to 15.

There are 17 people still unaccounted for, and there is also an unregistered woman from Hungary who may have been on board the ship.

Officials say the wreckage now appears to be stable and they hope to start pumping the 24 hundred tons of fuel out of the vessel as early as Tuesday.
