SEPANG: Malaysian Navy are in communication with its Vietnam counterpart to verify reports of the sighting of the wreckage of an aircraft near an island in the southern side of the country.
Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said as of 2pm, the report had been classified as untrue.
