Plane search poser

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

SYD­NEY: Aus­tralia says it has not ruled out a fu­ture un­der­wa­ter search for a miss­ing Malaysia Air­lines pas­sen­ger jet as fam­i­lies of those on board crit­i­cised the de­ci­sion to sus­pend the hunt.

The lo­ca­tion of Flight MH370 has be­come one of the world’s great­est avi­a­tion mys­ter­ies since the plane dis­ap­peared in 2014 en route to Bei­jing from Kuala Lumpur with 239 peo­ple on board.

“I don’t rule out a fu­ture un­der­wa­ter search by any stretch,” Aus­tralian Trans­port Min­is­ter Dar­ren Ch­ester told re­porters in Melbourne, a day af­ter Aus­tralia, Malaysia and China called off the search in the south­ern In­dian Ocean.
