Italian divers carry out controlled explosions on the stricken Italian ship Costa Concordia. They're trying to enter inaccessible areas of the capsized cruise liner to search for bodies and possible survivors.

Rescuers on Thursday used explosives to enter previously inaccessible areas of the half-submerged cruise ship on the Italian coast.

Recovery teams working on the capsized Italian liner are racing against the clock to complete the search for victims of the disaster before the weather turns and salvage crews need to start pumping fuel from the wreck.

Six days after the Costa Concordia capsized off the Tuscan coast, hopes of finding anyone alive on the partially submerged hulk have all but disappeared.

Eleven people are known to have died and 21 people are still unaccounted for out of more than 4,200 passengers and crew.
