(Flight MH370) Pings suspected of coming from missing plane
(05-29 12:46)

The US Navy has described as "speculative" claims that underwater pings thought linked to the missing Malaysia Airlines plane were probably not coming from the jet.
Michael Dean, the US Navy's deputy director of ocean engineering, told CNN the acoustic signals probably came from some other man-made source.
But the US Navy subsequently called Dean's comments "premature". Flight MH370 went missing on March 8 as it flew from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
Using satellite data, officials have concluded that the airliner, which had 239 people on board, ended its journey in the Indian Ocean, north-west of the Australian city of Perth.
Four pings that officials believed could be from the missing plane's "black box" flight recorders were heard by search teams using specialist equipment. These pings have defined the area for the sea-floor search that is continuing. --RTHK
