News Agencies | Updated on: 17 January 2017, 12:09 IST

The deep sea hunt for missing flight MH370 has been suspended, the Australian, Malaysian and Chinese governments said on 17 January.

The Malaysia Airlines aircraft disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on 8 March, 2014, carrying 239 passengers and crew.

The plane "has not been located" in the 120,000 square kilometre (46,000 square mile) search area of the southern Indian Ocean, a statement from the three nations said.

"To date no new information has been discovered to determine the specific location of the aircraft. Accordingly, the underwater search for MH370 has been suspended."
