GIGLIO, Italy (AP) ' Police divers and rescue crews are circled around the wreckage of the cruise ship that ran aground off the Tuscan coast in an apparent search for the few dozen people who remain unaccounted for.

Late Saturday a South Korean couple on their honeymoon were rescued when firefighters in the unsubmerged part of the Costa Concordia heard their screams.

Crews in dinghies were seen Sunday morning touching the hull with their hands. They were near the site of the 160-foot (50-meter) -long gash where water flooded in and caused the ship to fall on its side.

Coast guard officials have said divers will try to enter the belly of the ship in case anyone is still inside Italian news reports quoting local officials say some 40 people remain unaccounted for out of the 4,200 passengers and crew. Three people are confirmed dead.
