Missing Malaysia Plane: Final Words Revealed
The last words from the cockpit of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane have been revealed as the search for the aircraft widens to new areas.
The pilot replied "Okay, received, goodnight" when Malaysian air traffic controllers signed off and told the plane it was entering Vietnam's airspace.
Vietnamese controllers say they never heard from the aircraft.
Hundreds of relatives of the missing passengers were told of the Boeing 777's last communication during a meeting with Malaysian officials in Beijing.
India has now been asked to help scour the Andaman Sea, off Malaysia's west coast, authorities said during a separate news conference in Kuala Lumpur.
Defence and Transport Minister Hishammudin Hussein said the search was also covering the South China Sea and the Strait of Malacca.
China - home to most of the missing passengers - is also adding more planes to the search.
Mr Hussein said 12 countries were now involved, with 42 ships and 39 planes deployed to cover 27,000 square nautical miles - an area roughly the size of Hungary.
He said: "My heart reaches out to the families of the passengers and crew and I give you my assurance that we will not reduce the tempo and that we will not spare any effort to find the missing plane.
"Each day that passes I fear that the search and rescue becomes just a search, but we never give up hope."
Malaysia's air force chief confirmed military radar detected what could have been the airliner in an area in the north of the Strait of Malacca at around 2.15am local time on Saturday - 45 minutes after the plane vanished from air traffic control screens.
Rodzali Daud said the radar tracking point was 200 miles northwest of Penang island on Malaysia's west coast, but that the detection had not been corroborated.
A senior Malaysia Airlines executive said on Wednesday there was "no reason to believe" the crew had caused the disappearance of the plane.
It follows theories that one of them could have committed suicide.
Hugh Dunleavy, commercial director of the company, said: "We have no reason to believe that there was anything, any actions, internally by the crew that caused the disappearance of this aircraft."
Footage has also emerged of relatives furious at the lack of progress in the hunt for the Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 239 people.
The video is thought to have been recorded two days ago, and shows family members shouting and throwing an object at officials.
:: Sky News will be showing a 12-minute special report on the story so far of the missing flight at 8.30pm.
Photographs of the two pilots, Fariq Abdul Hamid and Zaharie Ahmad Shah, have also come out.
Malaysia Airlines is investigating a report that Mr Hamidáhad invited two women to stay in the cockpit for the duration of a trip two years ago.
Jonti Roos told Australia's Channel Nine that MráHamid and the other pilot talked to her and her friend, and smoked and posed for photos during the flight. The second pilot was not identified.
Meanwhile, CIA director John Brennan has said there had been "some claims of responsibility" over the missing jet that had "not been confirmed or corroborated," and that he could not exclude the possibility of a terror link.
There were a host of unanswered questions including why the plane's transponder stopped emitting signals and what was the role of passengers carrying stolen passports, Mr Brennan said.
But officials have said the two men who boarded the flight using stolen European passports appear to have been young Iranian migrants seeking a new life overseas.
Interpol confirmed the identities of the two men, and based on growing information, Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said he was "inclined to conclude" the plane's disappearance was not the result of a terror attack.
Investigators are baffled by the lack of any wreckage from the aircraft and cannot understand why the black box flight recorders, which are designed to transmit signals on contact with water, are not transmitting a signal.
A US satellite imaging company is getting public help to scour high-resolution images to try and track down the missing plane.
DigitalGlobe, based in Longmont, Colorado, took images from its five satellites and has put them on a public website, Tomnod.
Users can then search through the images, tagging anything they think looks suspicious, which can then be followed up by satellite imaging experts.
