(Flight HM370) Search called off
(03-27 13:07)

Australian officials say search operations for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane have been suspended for the day due to bad weather.
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority says all planes that headed for the search area in the southern Indian Ocean earlier today are now returning to Perth and ships are leaving too.
Heavy rains, strong winds, low clouds and reduced visibility are expected in the search zone, which is about 2,500 kilometers southwest of Perth, Australia.
Eleven planes and five ships had planned to scour the area today for the Boeing 777, which vanished early March 8 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people aboard.—AP
