GIGLIO ISLAND, Italy (AP) - Engineers say they have succeeded in wresting the hull of the shipwrecked Concordia from an Italian reef where it has been embedded since it capsized in January 2012.

Engineer Sergio Girotto told reporters Monday that the crippled vessel wouldn't budge for some three hours after the operation to right it began. After 6,000 tons of force were applied, Girotto said "we saw the detachment" using undersea cameras.

He said the cameras did not immediately reveal any sign of two bodies that were never recovered from the 32 who died during the disaster.
