(Flight MH370) Air force chief Daud denies strait citing
(03-12 12:27)

Malaysia's air force reiterated today it had not ruled out the possibility the Boeing 777 inexplicably changed course, but denied the report it had been detected in the Malacca Strait, far from its planned flight path.
“For the time being, it would not be appropriate... to issue any official conclusions as to the aircraft's flight path until a high amount of certainty and verification is achieved,'' Air Force chief General Rodzali Daud said in a statement.
“However all ongoing search operations are at the moment being conducted to cover all possible areas where the aircraft could have gone down in order to ensure no possibility is overlooked.''
Authorities have so far revealed no details on radar data they said indicated a possible “turn-back.’’
The search operation now involves 42 ships and 35 aircraft from Southeast Asian countries, Australia, China, New Zealand and the United States.—AFP
