Missing Malaysia helicopter debris found: PM


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian search crews have found suspected debris from a helicopter that disappeared with six people on board, including a deputy minister and a Parliament member, the Prime Minister said Friday. Search teams recovered a rotor blade, a floatation device, part of a wall panel, a door and a seat early Friday on the Borneo island state of Sarawak near where the helicopter is believed to have crashed, Najib Razak told reporters. Najib said rescuers were searching for the main body of the helicopter and said the debris was found close to Batang Lupar, one of the widest rivers on Borneo island. The Eurocopter AS350 was ferrying Deputy Minister Noriah Kasnon, her husband Asmuni Abdullah and Member of Parliament Wan Mohammad Khair-il Anuar Wan Ahmad from the state’s interior to the state capital Kuching when it went missing Thursday. The others in the aircraft included two government officials and a Filipino pilot. `
