MH370 SEARCH: Search set to enter next phase - underwater

Search enters second month; M'sia prepares for difficult underwater search amid addressing tricky long-term legal issues involving missing passengers

As the hunt for Flight MH370 enters its second month, Malaysia is preparing for a difficult underwater search even as it addresses tricky long-term legal issues involving the missing passengers.

Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein, Malaysia's point man in the crisis, said he is deploying more assets soon to the search area after Australian and Chinese search operations failed to pick up new pulse signals after the weekend.

"Once we find the black box, we have to go down deeper. We're not talking about aeroplanes any more, we're not talking about ships any more. We're talking about submersibles," he said in an interview with Singaporean media yesterday.

As concerns mount that the batteries in the black box have exceeded their expected lifespan of 30 days, Hishammuddin said sonars may also be brought in to look for the wreckage.

Legal issues are also being looked at, he added, saying that the Attorney-General is looking into issues of claims by the families, autopsies, and jurisdiction over the study of the black box.
