(Flight MH370) French team faces difficult situation
(03-17 17:38)

French investigators arriving in Malaysia to lend their experience and expertise from the two-year search for an Air France jet that crashed into the Atlantic Ocean in 2009 said they were able to rely on distress signals _ but investigators say the Malaysian airliner's communications links were deliberately severed ahead of its mysterious disappearance more than a week ago.
“It's very different from the Air France case. The Malaysian situation is much more difficult,'' Jean Paul Troadec, a special adviser to France's aviation accident investigation bureau, said in Kuala Lumpur.—AP
