Five more bodies have been found in the wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise ship, which struck a reef off the coast of Italy in January.
The discovery raises to 30 the number of bodies recovered. Two people remain missing and are presumed dead.
News of three bodies was revealed by Franco Gabrielli, the head of the Civil Protection agency who is in charge of search and salvage operations.
It later emerged two more bodies had been found by divers.
May their families find some solace that they can at least now say a proper farewell to their loved ones. Our thoughts go out to them,
