New analysis of satellite data indicates that the missing Malaysia Airlines aircraft had crashed into the southern Indian Ocean, Xinhua news agency cited Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak as saying Monday. Najib said the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch and Inmarsat, a UK company that provided the satellite data, have concluded that “the missing jetliner flew along the southern corridor,” and its last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth, Australia. Meanwhile, news website jrj.com reported Tuesday that a total of 190 insurance policies may have been purchased from 24 Chinese firms for travel coverage on the ill-fated Flight MH370 that had gone missing for over two weeks. The insurers could pay out a combined 30 million yuan (US$4.84 million) in claims, it said.
