Australia: MH370 may have turned south earlier than previously thought
(CNN) — Satellite phone data suggests Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 may have turned south earlier than previously thought, Australian Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said Thursday.
The information hasn’t changed the priority search area for the plane in the southern Indian Ocean, Truss said.
Flight 370 disappeared on March 8 with 239 people on board. Months of searching have so far turned up no debris from the plane.
