Missing MH370: Search for missing aircraft above politics: Hishamuddin

SEPANG - The search of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 is beyond politics and requires the support of all, said acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein.

He urged everyone to put their differences aside to unite and devote all attention towards the search of the aircraft. "I would like to state the search for MH370 is bigger than politics.

"I urge all Malaysians to put our differences aside and unite during this difficukt time as we focus on finding the aircraft and 239 people on baord," he said in a press conference at the Sama Sama Hotel here earlier.

The search of the missing flight continues as efforts to look for the missing plane have been narrowed down to two corridors spanning from Caspian Sea to the southern Indian Ocean.

The Beijing-bound flight went missing on Mar 8 after losing all communications with air traffic controllers.

Investigators believe the flight was deliberately diverted westward from a point off Vietnam waters in the South China Sea.
