Heavy weather forced salvage crews to suspend pumping fuel from the wrecked Costa Concordia.
How do you turn over a 952-foot cruise ship that's capsized on a rocky shoreline?
The operation to extract 2,400 tonnes of fuel from 15 tanks is expected to take 28 days, weather permitting.
Fears rose of an environmental disaster from a wrecked cruise ship in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Italy.
Divers may try anchoring the capsized Concordia to a reef to prevent it from tumbling into a drop off, which could cause fuel tanks to rupture.
Engineers propose anchoring the ship to the reef and sea bottom using 4-inch-diameter steel ropes.
The bag, found in relatively good condition on an island 28 miles from the wreck, belongs to an Austrian passenger who survived the accident.
Underwater footage taken by a remotely operated vehicle shows crumbling rocks and new deformation of the Concordia wreck.
