Bangladeshi ships begin their own unofficial MH370 search

TWO Bangladeshi navy ships have begun searching the Bay of Bengal for traces of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, but have yet to find anything, the US news network CNN reported.

According to CNN, the ships are following a tip from Australian company GeoResonance, which claims to have sighted possible traces of a submerged plane.

The area is thousands of kilometres from the official search zone in the southern Indian Ocean.

"We haven't found anything yet and the frigates will continue the search until they verify all available information," Commodore Rashed Ali, director of Bang-ladeshi navy intelligence, told the network.

Malaysia's acting Trans-port Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said he was also considering joining the search, despite remaining highly sceptical the missing plane would be found there.
