Australia PM suggests MH370 search could be scaled back


SYDNEY: Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Thursday suggested the search for missing Flight MH370 may be scaled back, while expressing hope the jet would be found a year after it vanished. The Malaysia Airlines plane disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014 with 239 people on board. No trace has been found despite a massive surface and underwater hunt. Australia is leading the hunt in the Indian Ocean some 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) off its west coast, with four ships using sophisticated sonar systems to scour a huge underwater area.
