MH370 report gives few new details to mystery

But Malaysia remains committed to the search for the plane
Exactly a year after Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished without trace, Prime Minister Najib Razak said that Malaysia remains committed to the search for the plane. On the same day the families of the missing passengers and crew mourned the first anniversary of the disappearance, a report by international investigators was published offering no new clues to the mystery.
The 584-page interim report gave details on how radars had tracked the Boeing 777 going off course as well as on the battery of the flight data recorder’s underwater locator beacon. It also showed the panicked and chaotic messages between air traffic controllers on the night.
But a definitive cause for the disappearance was not given, the report stressing that there was nothing suspicious in the crew members’ financial, medical or personal histories.
With 227 passengers and 12 crew on board, MH370 vanished from radar screens after taking off from Kuala Lumpur, bound for Beijing, early on March 8 last year. Investigators believe the plane flew thousands of kilometres off course before crashing into the ocean off Australia. A search in the area is likely to be finished by May.
