BRINDISI, Italy — Greece and Italy are issuing widely different figures for how many passengers and crew are still not accounted for in the ferry fire that killed at least 11 people in the Adriatic Sea.

An Italian prosecutor has said up to 98 are unaccounted for while Greece puts that number at 18 and says Italy’s list is full of duplications and misspellings.

It’s also still not clear how many people were even aboard the Norman Atlantic ferry that caught fire early Sunday as it headed from Greece to Italy. Italy’s Coast Guard says 477 people were rescued.

Tugboat crews waited Thursday for high winds and waves to ease before towing the vessel to the Italian port of Brindisi. Authorities want to inspect the ferry to see if contains any more dead.
