(Flight MH370) Oil slick is bunker oil, test shows
(03-10 19:04)

Samples taken from an oil slick off Malaysia are not from a missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, based on a chemistry lab analysis, an official said.
“The oil is not used for aircraft,'' Maritime Enforcement Agency spokeswoman Faridah Shuib said, adding it was a type used by ships.
Local media reports citing the agency said it was bunker oil.
The slick, from which the samples were collected, was about 185 kilometers north off Malaysia's east coast state of Kelantan and just south of the point where air traffic controllers lost contact with the plane, which disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.—AFP
