Malaysia says MH370 report to be released after latest search ends Mar 09, 2018 0 48 12345 REUTERSKUALA LUMPURThe full investigation report into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 will be released after the latest search efforts are completed, officials said on Thursday, four years after the aircraft first went missing.Flight MH370, carrying 239 people onboard, became one of the world's greatest aviation mysteries when it disappeared on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014.Malaysia agreed in January to pay US firm Ocean Infinity up to $70 million if it found the plane during an offshore search effort that is underway and expected to end in June.The decision to engage the firm came after Australia, China and Malaysia ended a fruitless A$200-million ($159.38 million) search across a 120,000 square-kilometre (46,332 square miles) area in the Indian Ocean last year, despite investigators calling for the target area to be extended 25,000 square kilometres (9653 square miles) north.The release of a full report into MH370's disappearance has been suspended pending the outcome of the new search, as any new evidence uncovered is"likely to significantly affect the investigation", Malaysian investigators said in their annual interim statement sent to families of those aboard the plane.
