Malaysia, Australia, China to meet over MH370 search
Officials from Malaysia, Australia and China are meeting in June to discuss how to proceed with the search for disappeared flight MH370.
The Malaysian Government said on Thursday in Kuala Lumpur that the three plane parts judged to be from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight two in Mozambique and one on the French island of Reunion had been recovered since the airliner went missing over two years ago.
Abdul-Aziz Kaprawi, Malaysia’s Deputy Transport Minister, said a huge underwater search was ongoing, but that the main body of the plane had yet to be found.
Kaprawi also said 103,000 square kilometres of the 120,000-square-kilometre search area in the southern Indian Ocean, where the plane was suspected to have crashed, had been covered, so far.
The flight with 239 people aboard, most of them Chinese, disappeared nearly an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8, 2014.
