Malaysian PM confirms missing plane no accident

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (AP) - Malaysia's prime minister says missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 was deliberately diverted and continued flying for more than six hours after losing contact with the ground.

Prime Minister Najib Razak's statement confirms that the plane's disappearance more than a week ago was not accidental.

It also expands an already vast search area. The plane's last communication with a satellite was in one of two possible "corridors" - a northern one from northern Thailand through to the border of the Central Asian countries Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan, and a southern one from Indonesia to the southern Indian Ocean.

The plane was carrying 239 people when it departed for an overnight flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing at 12:40 a.m. on March 8. Investigators are taking another look at the flight's crew and passengers. Police have visited the Kuala Lumpur homes of both the pilot and co-pilot today, according to a guard and several local reporters.
