The search for Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 continues. A robotic submarine has completed its first full 16-hour mission scanning the floor of the Indian Ocean for wreckage. This comes after two previous missions were cut short by technical problems and deep water.
The search coordination center has stated that the Bluefin 21 has covered 90 square kilometers of silt-covered sea bed off the western Australian coast. The data collected by the submarine from its latest mission is being analyzed, but nothing of note has been discovered yet. In Britain, CCTV correspondent Richard Bestic speaks to a leading oceanographer about the difficulties encountered in the search.
