(03-18 17:07)

China's largest rescue vessel, the 128.6-meter Haixun 01, headed toward Singapore today to join in the search for missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777.
The vessel is estimated to arrive in the waters near Singapore for supplies tomorrow before dawn and sail to the waters near the Sunda Strait.
Haixun 01 carries a helicopter, underwater robot, black box search instrument, side-scan sonar and magnetometer. It is one of China's most advanced search and rescue vessels.
It is the first Chinese patrol vessel to incorporate both marine inspection and rescue functions. The vessel has a maximum sailing distance of more than 10,000 nautical miles without refueling.—Xinhua
