Rescue operations on the stricken cruise ship off the coast of Italy have been suspended due to rough seas. Rescue workers were back on board the ship monday morning only to be called off after the ship started to move.  The movement made it too dangerous for workers and divers still looking for survivors.

So far six people are confirmed dead and 16 are still missing, including a couple from Minnesota, 4200 people were on board the ship at the time of the accident. The ship's captain has been arrested and is now facing manslaughter charges.
