The two missing American passengers on the Costa Concordia cruise ship have been positively identified an elderly couple from Minnesota. They were among the five bodies recovered last month and were the only American casualties.
The three other bodies were also positively identified as a missing German couple and an Italian crewman. Thirty-two people died when the luxury liner capsized off the Tuscan coast in January after it hit a reef. Two people are still missing and are presumed dead.
Captain Francesco Schettino is still under house arrest as he is being investigated on allegations of manslaughter and abandoning the ship before all 4,200 passengers and crew members were evacuated.
