Divers have recovered the body of an elderly woman from the third deck of the "Costa Concordia" cruise ship, bringing the number of dead recovered from the half-submerged luxury liner to 16.

At least 18 people are still listed as missing since the January 13 accident, when the ship with about 4,200 passengers and crew on board hit an undersea rock close to Giglio Island off Italy's western coast.

Captain Francesco Schettino faces charges of multiple manslaughter in connection with the wreck and evacuation.

His lawyers say prosecutors are considering expanding the investigation to include managers of the company that owns the ship, Costa Cruises.
