BANGKOK, March 10, 8:27 /ITAR-TASS/. The search and rescue operation, which was launched in South China Sea where a Beijing-bound airliner Boeing-777-200 of the Malaysian Airlines Company (MAC) from Kuala Lumpur disappeared more than 48 hours ago, is being continued on Monday with the participation of air vehicles and sea-going ships of eight countries, MAC reported on Monday.
The MAC report says that despite the lack of results Malaysia is going ahead with the search and that the efforts are being coordinated by Malaysia's Department of Civil Aviation. Air vehicles or sea-going ships have been also sent to the operation area by Australia, China, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, the Philippines, and the United States.
