Seven Israelis were on board the Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia that ran aground Friday night, the Foreign Ministry announced Saturday night.

The Foreign Ministry stated that all seven were rescued and unharmed, and that the Israeli embassy in Rome was attending to their needs.

However, the Foreign Ministry added that at this stage it was not known whether they were any other Israelis on board the ship.
