  • TEMPO.CO, Canberra - Australian authorities plan to announce a new search area on Wednesday, June 25, 2014, in an attempt to find the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which has disappeared for more than 100 days. No trace of the plane or the 239 paaengers were found, making it one of the biggest mysteries in aviation history.

    Times reported that the Australian Transport Safety Bureau said that it has been re-examining the data that could "shift the search area hundreds of kilometers south along an arc derived from satellite data."

    On the other hand, Malaysian police are denying The Sunday Times report that MH370 pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah is the primary suspect in the plane's disappearance. "We did not make any statement to say that Capt. Zaharie was the prime suspect," said Malaysian police spokeswoman Asmawati Ahmad.
