(Flight MH370) Sea search resumes in a narrower area
(03-26 08:56)

As frustration was setting in, calmer seas returned and the search for the remains of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 began anew in remote waters of the southern Indian Ocean.
A dozen planes and two ships from the United States, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand resumed the search for debris in a much narrower
area based on the last satellite signals received from the plane piloted by two Malaysians. The area is an estimated at 1.6 million square kilometers.
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority, which coordinates the search on Malaysia's behalf, said the search will focus on 80,000 square kilometers of ocean.
Malaysia announced Monday that an analysis of satellite data received after Flight 370 left Kuala Lumpur for Beijing on March 8 indicated the plane had “ended’’ its flight in the southern Indian Ocean, killing all 239 people aboard.—AP
