The two missing American passengers who were on the Costa Concordia cruise liner when it crashed into rocks and then capsized off the Tuscan coast in January have been identified. Two of the five bodies recovered last month have been positively identified as the missing elderly couple from Minnesota.
The three other people found by rescuers were identified as a German couple and an Italian crew member. Two more people are still missing, an Indian crewman and an Indian woman, and are presumed dead.
The captain of the ship, Francesco Schettino, is still under house arrest as prosecutors investigate him on allegations of manslaughter and abandoning the ship before all passengers and crew members were evacuated.
