Rome - Divers on Saturday found the body of a woman on the half-sunken Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia, officials on the island of Giglio said, bringing the total number of bodies recovered to 17.

The woman was discovered on the flooded sixth deck of the vessel, which sank two weeks ago just off Giglio, on Italy's western coast.

There are still about 20 people unaccounted for.

Meanwhile the Dutch company charged with removing thousands of tons of fuel from the ship said bad weather may delay the operation until mid-week, according to the ANSA news agency.

The operation had originally been due to start on Saturday.
