The official death toll of the Costa Concordia crash rose to 21 after salvage workers found four more bodies in the wrecked ship, a month and a week after it went down January 14.
The list of the newly confirmed dead includes a 5-year-old girl, Reuters reports, and the discovery means 11 people from the ship's roster have yet to be located. Of course, that figure doesn't take into account any stowaways that may have been aboard, which Italian Civil Protection authority head Franco Gabrielli suggested in late January. Costa cruise line has denied any stowaways were on board.
