#AceWorldNews US officials have found an “indication” that the missing Malaysia Airlines jet-liner could have gone down in the Indian Ocean, ABC News reported, citing a senior Pentagon official.
According to the source, there were indications that the plane flew four or five hours after disappearing from radar, which gives reasons to expand the search further to the west of Malaysia, far from the original flight path of the plane.
Malaysian Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein has said that the authorities will expand the search “even if the evidence suggests there is a possibility of finding a minor evidence to suggest that… the aircraft would have been there.
” According to media reports, the US Navy has deployed USS Kidd to the Straits of Malacca, which connect the Pacific and the Indian Ocean, to facilitate the search.
Please note this has not been confirmed at the present and needs verifying.
