Nearly a week after the Costa Concordia ran aground and capsized off the Italian coast, recovery teams have resumed their search for the 21 victims still unaccounted for onboard the stricken vessel. The search was temporarily suspended on Wednesday after rescuers began fearing that the ship was unstable and could shift in place. According to officials, the teams are racing to complete their search before bad weather, and a need to begin pumping fuel from the wrecked ship, forces them to cease their efforts. The discovery of 5 more bodies on Tuesday in the submerged portion of the ship brought the death toll to 11. Two American passengers are still listed as missing.
