China will send a special envoy to Kuala Lumpur to seek more information on the mysterious crash of a Malaysian airliner even as Beijing today demanded the handing over of the satellite data that showed the plane ended in the Indian Ocean.
An official announcement made in Beijing said Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Yesui will head for Kuala Lumpur soon to get more information on the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 – carrying 239 people, 154 of whom were Chinese.
Meanwhile, the search for the plane which was halted today due to bad weather by the Australian government is expected to resume tomorrow.
China has sent some six vessels to the area where two Chinese IL-76 aircraft are scouring the rough seas for the missing plane.
The MH370 went missing about an hour after takeoff from Kuala Lumpur en route to Beijing on March 8.
