(Flight MH370) China suspects seafloor seismic event linked to Boeing 777
(03-14 15:07)

Chinese researchers say they detected a seismic event on the seafloor between Malaysia and Vietnam.
The event occurred at about 2:55 am local time on Saturday, about one-and-a-half hours after the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777's last definitive sighting on civilian radar.
The area, 116 km northeast from where the last contact with the Boeing was recorded, used to be a non-seismic region, according to a research group on seismology and physics of the earth's interior under the University of Science and Technology of China.
The seismic event on the seafloor could have been caused by the plane possibly plunging into the sea, the research group said.—Xinhua
