Missing MH370: Malaysia seeks India's help in search

NEW DELHI - Malaysia has sought India's help to locate a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner, India's foreign ministry said on Wednesday, as the search expanded to cover an area stretching from China to the Andaman Sea.

"Malaysia and India have been in contact on this since yesterday, and contact points are being discussed. These contact points will ascertain what assistance is required and what India can offer," a spokesman for the ministry said.

The spokesman said it had not yet been decided what area India would search in.

India has a large military command in its Andaman and Nicobar islands and its navy patrols in the straits of Malacca.
