Malaysia plane: 'Refined data' changes search area

28 March 2014 Last updated at 10:34 GMT

Malaysia's acting transport minister, Hishammuddin Hussein, has said that the search for Flight MH370 has shifted 1,100km (684 miles) north-east of the previous zone.

Mr Hussein said the new search area had been defined after previous information was re-examined and refined.

It is now believed the plane was travelling faster than earlier estimates, thus using more fuel.

The Beijing-bound airliner disappeared on 8 March with 239 people on board.
