Costa Concordia search resumes

Search operations on the Costa Concordia resume after being suspended for a day due to weather conditions. Recovery workers are searching for the bodies of 15 people still missing -- weeks after the ship hit rocks off the Italian island of Giglio. Bad weather had already delayed plans to begin removing the 2,300 tonnes of diesel fuel from the ship's tanks -- an operation expected to take up to a month once it gets underway. On Monday, navy teams also inspected the wreckage to determine whether salvage boats could safely work close to the ship. The half-submerged vessel could remain where it lies until the end of the year or longer before it can be broken up or salvaged. But the Costa Concordia is moving an estimated one millimeter every six hours -- raising fears that it could eventually slip entirely beneath the waters of the Mediterranean. Travis Brecher, Reuters
