(Flight MH370) Vietnam awaits Malaysian response
(03-12 12:22)

Vietnam, whose southern coast had been the focus of the recovery effort, said it had suspended its air search and scaled back sea operations as it waited for Malaysia to clarify the potential new direction of the search.
“We've decided to temporarily suspend some search and rescue activities, pending information from Malaysia,'' deputy minister of transport Pham Quy Tieu said.
“We've asked Malaysian authorities twice, but so far they have not replied to us,'' Tieu said, when asked about a media report that the plane had been detected over the Strait of Malacca.
“We informed Malaysia on the day we lost contact with the flight that we noticed the flight turned back west but Malaysia did not respond,'' he added.—AFP
