Body found, death toll at 6 in ship disaster 

Italian rescue officials say a passenger's body has been found in the wreckage of the Costa Concordia cruise ship, raising to six the number of confirmed dead in the disaster. Sixteen people remain unaccounted-for.

Fire official Luca Cari told state radio Monday that the victim was a man, found in a corridor in the part of the ship that was still above water. He said the victim was wearing the orange-colored life vest of passengers.

The number of unaccounted-for was increased because two Sicilian women, originally listed among the evacuated, have not contacted relatives. Cari said a search of all the ship, including a divers' inspection of the submerged areas, continues, but the sea is becoming rough.
