‘Pulse signal’ detected by Chinese ship


BEIJING: A Chinese ship searching for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 detected a “pulse signal” in the southern Indian Ocean Saturday, state media said, but it was not yet clear whether it was linked to the missing plane.

The signal had a frequency of 37.5kHz per second—identical to the beacon signal emitted by flight recorders.

A black box detector deployed by the Chinese search ship Haixun 01 picked up the signal at about 25 degrees south latitude and 101 degrees east longitude, the official Xinhua news agency said.
