KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysia’s defense minister says the government will release a preliminary report on Thursday of its investigation into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370.
Hishammuddin Hussein said the report is similar to one Malaysia submitted to the International Civil Aviation Organization.
The Boeing 777 jet disappeared March 8 with 239 people on board while traveling from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing. Officials are still searching for the plane, which is believed to have crashed in the southern Indian Ocean.
Radar and satellite data show the jet veered far off course for unknown reasons. An analysis indicates it would have run out of fuel in the remote section of ocean where a massive multinational hunt has been focused, but not one piece of confirmed debris has been found.
