Malayasian Government report on missing flight MH370 due

A MALAYSIAN Government report into the disappearance of flight MH370 is to be released, almost seven weeks after the Boeing 777 carrying 239 people vanished while travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Razak told CNN the dossier would be released next week.

The PM said he was yet to formally declare the Malaysia Airlines flight lost out of respect for those who have loved-ones on board.

"At some point in time I would be, but right now I think I need to take into account the feelings of the next of kin - and some of them have said publicly that they aren't willing to accept it until they find hard evidence," he said in the interview.

Meanwhile, eight military aircrafts and 10 ships were to continue the hunt for the lost jet, about 1584km north-west of Perth.

The Bluefin-21 AUV, an automated mini-submarine helping with the underwater search is 95% finished scouring the area where a "ping", possibly from the plane's black box, was detected on April 8.
