The search for the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the southern Indian Ocean has resumed, after weather conditions improved.
On Monday, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak revealed that based on the latest data, it can be concluded the plane went down in the Indian Ocean, some 2,500 km off the Australian coast of Perth.
A dozen aircraft and ships are conducting search operations, coordinated by Australian rescue officials, Euronews reports. New Zealand, USA, Japan, China, and South Korea are also taking part in the efforts to find the aircraft. The total area of the search is 80,000 sq m.
On Tuesday, relatives of the missing passengers marched to the Malaysian Embassy in Beijing, in a protest against the lack of information and slow investigation. They demand that Malaysian authorities release the official data on which the Prime Minister's claims were based.
A total of 239 people were on board, 153 of them Chinese nationals.
