BRIEF — Burmese navy joins MH370 search

Three Burmese naval vessels have joined the hunt for Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, Xinhua reported on Sunday. The three ships began their search in Burmese waters in the Bay of Bengal on Saturday, after the Malaysian government redirected the search to include a “corridor” between northern Thailand and the border of Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan. That path could potentially incorporate Burmese territory. The Burmese government readied a rescue team last week, however their participation was held pending a formal request from Malaysia.
