MALAYSIA-CHINA-AUSTRALIA-MALAYSIAAIRLINES-TRANSPORT-ACCIDENT

State-of-the-art underwater gear will soon join the massive, multinational effort to locate Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, but only when the search zone narrows. A new day of scouring the Southern Indian Ocean, west of Australia, is underway. CCTV’s Tony Cheng reports.

Malaysian authorities have confirmed the final communication recorded from Flight 370. CCTV’s Andy Saputra reports from Kuala Lumpur.

Meanwhile, two busloads of relatives of Chinese passengers from Flight 370 have been taken to a Buddhist temple in Kuala Lumpur to take part in chanting and prayers. Families are angry over the lack of concrete information about the whereabouts of the missing Malaysian plane. However, they thanked those who’ve been sending support and trying to find their loved ones. CCTV’s Rian Maelzer reports.

The disappearance of the Malaysian plane — and the backlash the official handling of the situation has caused — has left many potential Chinese travelers at home. One Chinese travel agency has gone ahead and cancelled service to the country. CCTV’s Stella Lee reports from Beijing.
