Grounded Ship Shifts Overnight, Rescue Operations Halted

ROME (AP) - The cruise ship grounded off Tuscany has again shifted on its rocky perch, forcing the suspension of search and rescue operations for the 21 people still missing.

It's not clear if the movements registered overnight by onboard sensors are just vibrations as the Costa Concordia settles on the rocks or if it's slipping off the rocks.

The ship's movements are being carefully monitored since any significant shift could be dangerous for divers trying to locate those missing after the Concordia ran aground Jan. 13 off Tuscany.

An additional fear is that any significant movement could damage tanks holding a half-million gallons of fuel oil.

Navy spokesman Alessandro Busonero said Friday that divers are ready to go back in once conditions are safe.
