Authorities raise list of missing to 29 in Italian shipwreck
Italian authorities revised upward their list of people missing in the wreck of a cruise ship to 25 passengers and four crew members, DPA reported.
The official count had been 16 people missing, but the chaos of the evacuation of the Costa Concordia late Friday was still being sorted out with many passengers leaving the area on their own after reaching land.
Admiral Marco Brusco, chief of the Italian Coast Guard, said 12 of the missing passengers were German.
Six people have been confirmed dead since the cruise ship ran aground and partially capsized in the Mediterranean Sea, about 150 metres off Giglio, a tiny island off the coast of Tuscany.
