Malaysia airlines flight MH370 went missing and now its the 11th day. There are now 26 countries involved in the search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Malaysia's defense minister today said he was not ruling anything out and hoped the 239 passengers and crew could still be alive somewhere.

Taliban militants have claimed they knew nothing about the whereabouts of missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 after the search for the Boeing 777 was extended.
Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Taliban in Afghanistan, said: "It happened outside Afghanistan and you can see that even countries with very advanced equipment and facilities cannot figure out where it went. So we also do not have any information as it is an external issue.."
A spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban said: "We wish we had an opportunity to hijack such a plane."
India insisted that the plane did not fly in its airspace with a military official saying: "The idea that the plane flew through Indian airspace fro several hours without anyone noticing is bizarre. These are wild reports without any basis."
He added that to do so a pilot would need to know the location of all Indian radars and surveillance systems.

It has emerged tonight that a US Navy ship will no longer be taking part in the search operation.
A US defense official said the USS Kidd will leave the Indian Ocean and return to normal operations.
As reported by The Telegraph, it is believed the Navy thinks long-range aircraft will be better coped to deal with searching for the plane.
American P-8A Poseidon surveillance aircraft are being sent to Perth, in Western Australia, to help scour the ocean and find the missing plane.
The Malaysian government said diplomatic notes have been sent to all countries along the northern and southern search corridors requesting radar and satellite information.
They are also requesting help with land, sea and air search operations.
Today marked the 11th day since the plane went missing.

There have been a number of key developments today.
Taking a plane to such a low altitude - a technique called “terrain masking” - would have avoided detection on standard commercial radar equipment.
Investigators believe whoever was flying the Boeing 777 used terrain masking, which uses natural contours like hills and mountains, to hide the plane from satellite systems.
The airline's chief executive also revealed it was the co-pilot who said "all right, good night" before the aircraft went missing.
