GIGLIO, Italy -- Divers on Monday recovered five bodies found last week in the wreck of the Costa Concordia, two months after the cruise ship struck a reef and capsized off Italy's Tuscan coast.

Italy's Civil Protection Agency said that by late afternoon divers had brought up all five bodies located by search crews last week in the wreck off Giglio island.

The discovery last week raised to 30 the number of bodies found. Two people remain missing and are presumed dead. No details have been given about the latest victims recovered.
