Search for Missing Jet Shifts to Indian Ocean Amid Confusion Over Radar


Malaysian officials said they had expanded the search into the Andaman Sea, the part of the Indian Ocean northwest of the strait. The Pentagon said that the Kidd would be searching there, at the request of the Malaysian government, and that a P-3 surveillance plane had already flown over the area. Syed Akbaruddin, the spokesman for India’s Ministry of External Affairs, said that India had also sent three ships, two airplanes and a helicopter to search intensively in that area.
An American destroyer, the Kidd, was redeploying to the Strait of Malacca, the Seventh Fleet and Pentagon officials said — one of several indications that the hunt for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was turning away from the eastern waters that have been combed by dozens of ships and airplanes for days.
