Search teams suspend operations at stricken ship
Rough seas are preventing rescue workers from finding more passengers and crew in the capsized cruise ship off Italy's Tuscan coast.
The bodies of five passengers were recovered yesterday, raising the death toll to 11. Twenty-two people still are missing.
The Costa Concordia cruise liner had more than 4,200 passengers and crew on board when it slammed into the reef Friday off the tiny island of Giglio (JEEL'-yoh).
Firefighters searched the part of the ship above water overnight, but found none of the passengers and crew who are still missing.
