2. MH370: SEARCH AREA EVEN NARROWER
Fourteen planes and 13 ships have been combing an even narrower search area in the southern Indian Ocean, hoping to locate the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370. The newly-focused hunt will cover 22,364 sq miles, the smallest area yet. Yesterday the search leader said he was "optimistic" and more signals, possibly from the plane's black boxes, have been picked up.
