Sad news today, for the families of those who were on board the Malaysian airliner that disappeared more than two weeks ago.

Malaysia's Prime Minister announced that new analysis of the satellite data suggests Flight 370 went down in a remote part of the Indian Ocean.

The plane was carrying 239 passengers and crew when it disappeared on march eighth on its way from Beijing to Kuala Lumpur.

"Inmarsat and the AAIB have concluded that MH370 flew along the southern corridor, and that its last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth. This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean," said Malaysia's Prime Minister.
