The missing Malaysia Airlines plane has still not been found despite an extensive search. Authorities say:
– The Boeing 777 carrying 239 people lost contact over the sea between Malaysia and Vietnam; there was no sign of trouble before it disappeared, and no distress signal was sent.
– At least 34 aircraft and 40 ships from several countries are searching a 50-nautical mile radius from the point the plane vanished, but the only finds have been false alarms – a yellow object spotted by a search plane turned out to be trash, and oil slicks were shown to not be from an aircraft.
– Police and Interpol questioned the proprietors of a travel agency in Thailand that sold one-way tickets to two men who traveled on stolen passports.
