• MH370 SEARCH ON HOLD ANEW

    0

    SYDNEY: The hunt for the missing Malaysian passenger jet in the Indian Ocean was put on hold on Thursday after technical issues with a US Navy mini-submarine that require spare parts to be sent from Britain. Australia’s Joint Agency Coordination Agency (JACC), which is leading the search, revealed on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) that the Bluefin-21 submersible lasted only two hours in the water this week before it had to be raised. The JACC blamed “communications problems” for the aborted mission and after a more thorough examination, announced that spare parts will be needed before the sophisticated mini-sub can be used again.
