(Flight MH370) Search in southern Indian Ocean narrowed
(03-25 20:17)

Malaysia has narrowed the search for a missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 further in the southern Indian Ocean, where the aircraft was determined to have “ended’’ its flight.
Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein told a briefing in Kuala Lumpur just hours ago today that search efforts are “focused in the southern part of the southern corridor, in an area covering some 469,407 square nautical miles, as against the 2.24 million square nautical miles which we announced on March 18.’’
He added that search area will be narrowed further, using satellite surveillance information, analysis of surveillance radar data, increasing air and surface assets, and by increasing the number of technical and subject matter experts.—The Standard
