KUALA LUMPUR: Vietnam’s Civil Aviation Department planes spotted two large oil slicks that authorities suspect are from a MAS jetliner that went missing Saturday.

A statement said the slicks, each between 10km and 15km long, and 500m apart, were spotted some 140m south of Tho Chu island off southern Vietnam.

The statement said the slicks were consistent with the kind that would be left by fuel from a crashed jetliner.

The Boeing 777-222 jet disappeared from radar screens with 239 people on board en route to Beijing after taking off from KL International Airport at 12.41am.

It went off the radar screen at 1.30am.

HANOI 8 Mac – Pasukan tentera Vietnam yang menyertai operasi mencari dan menyelamat pesawat Malaysia Airlines (MAS) MH370 yang hilang, mengesahkan penemuan tumpahan minyak di perairan Laut China Selatan dan telah menghantar dua buah bot ke lokasi dinyatakan.

Timbalan Ketua Turus Tenteranya, Vo Van Tuan memberitahu saluran televisyen tempatan, VTV, dua buah pesawatnya ternampak tumpahan minyak sepanjang 15 hingga 20 kilometer yang berhampiran antara satu sama lain.

Tumpahan minyak itu kemungkinan besar boleh memberi petunjuk kepada kehilangan pesawat MH370 sewaktu dalam perjalanan dari Kuala Lumpur ke Beijing, awal hari ini.

“Kami belum dapat memastikan sama ada tumpahan minyak itu berpunca daripada pesawat terbabit atau mana-mana kapal Vietnam yang melalui kawasan tersebut,” katanya seperti yang dilaporkan AFP. – AFP
