Malaysia Airlines Plane Went Missing
A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew went missing over the South China Sea on Saturday.
The plane is presumed crashed, as ships from countries closest to its flight path scoured a large search area for any wreckage.
Vietnamese state media, quoting a senior naval official, had reported that the Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had crashed off south Vietnam, but Malaysia's transport minister later denied any crash scene had been identified.
"We are doing everything in our power to locate the plane," Transport Minister Hishamuddin Hussein told reporters near the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. "We are looking for accurate information from the Malaysian military. They are waiting for information from the Vietnamese side," he said.
