(RFE/RL) — Italian Coast Guard divers have found the body of a woman on board the Italian cruise ship that ran aground and capsized a week ago, bringing the known death toll to 12.

Coast Guard Commander Cosimo Nicastro told the Associated Press news agency that the body, wearing a life jacket, was found in a narrow corridor near an evacuation staging point at the ship’s rear.

The body was brought to Giglio, the Tuscan island where the cruise liner hit a reef and ran aground on January 14 with 4,200 people onboard.
