Giglio Island - Two more bodies were found on Monday from the wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise ship on the Tuscan island of Giglio, rescuers said, bringing the official death toll to 15.

"Two more bodies, two women, were found near the internet cafe" on board, Franco Gabrielli, who is overseeing operations on Giglio, told reporters.

"We cannot tell what nationality they were. They haven't been extracted" from the wreckage, he said, adding that their DNA would be compared to that collected from the relatives of missing people in recent days.

At least 17 people are missing in the disaster, although officials say there could have been at least one stowaway, a Hungarian woman, who was not on the list of people on board and has been unaccounted for.
