Search continues for missing plane

The search is continuing for a Malaysia Airlines plane that has been missing for more than 24 hours.

Marine rescue teams worked through the night to search the sea south of Vietnam, while the aerial mission resumed on Sunday morning.

Flight MH370 disappeared en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur, with 239 people on board.

At a news briefing in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday morning, officials said there had been no sign of any wreckage.

“The rescue operations continue… and we have to report that we have not been able to locate anything,” said Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, a representative of Malaysia’s civil aviation authority.

“There is nothing to report at this juncture.”

The passengers were of 14 different nationalities. Two-thirds were from China, while others were from elsewhere in Asia, North America and Europe. BBC
