SYDNEY: Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Monday admitted it was "highly unlikely" that any surface wreckage will be found from Flight MH370 as he announced a more intensive underwater search.
"I am now required to say to you that it is highly unlikely at this stage that we will find any aircraft debris on the ocean surface," he said on Monday following the disappearance of the Malaysian Airlines plane on March 8.
Australia on Monday said it would intensify the underwater hunt for missing MH370 as it conducts as thorough a search as "humanely possible".
"If necessary, of the entire probable impact zone which is roughly 700 kilometres by 80 kilometres," Abbott told reporters, when asked about the size of the search area. - AFP
