The State Department estimates that 126 U.S. citizens were aboard the cruise ship that ran aground off the Italian coast, but the U.S. has no reports of injuries so far.

Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the U.S. is working to get an exact count about the number of Americans who were on the Costa Concordia.

She says the U.S. Embassy has set up a crisis response team in Rome and U.S. citizens are being assisted with documentation and
lodging.

The luxury liner with 4,234 aboard ran aground off the island of Giglio near the coast of Tuscany late Friday. Three bodies have been recovered from the sea.
