BEIJING: China has begun searching for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet with 239 passengers and crew on board in Chinese territory, which covers a northern corridor through which the aircraft could have flown, said state news agency Xinhua on Tuesday, quoting Chinese Ambassador to Malaysia Huang Huikang.

A search of unprecedented scale involving 26 countries is under way, covering an area stretching from the shores of the Caspian Sea in the north to deep in the southern Indian Ocean, after flight MH370 went missing in the early hours of March 8. - Reuters
