Authorities in charge of the search for Malaysian Airlines flight 370 have said that they have found no trace of wreckage, despite earlier reports from Vietnam that an ‘aircraft door’ may have been seen floating on the ocean surface.
Malaysia says there is still no trace of wreckage from a jet that vanished with 239 people on board, deepening the anguish of relatives two days after the "mystifying" disappearance.
What we know about missing flight MH370
A potential breakthrough emerged on Sunday when an aircraft scouring waters off southern Vietnam - part of an international search and rescue effort - spotted two objects authorities said could be debris from Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

But Malaysian officials say there is no confirmation they came from the Boeing 777 which slipped off radar screens early on Saturday, an hour after leaving Kuala Lumpur for Beijing.

"Unfortunately ladies and gentleman, we have not found anything that appears to be objects from the aircraft, let alone the aircraft itself," Malaysia's civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman said on Monday.

"This unprecedented missing aircraft mystery - it is mystifying and we are increasing our efforts to do what we have to do," he told a press conference.

Malaysia has launched a terror probe after at least two of the passengers on board were found to have travelled on stolen passports.

34 planes and 40 ships are combing a large area north of Vietnam in search of Malaysia Airlines’ missing Boeing 777, which had 239 people on board.
But Azharuddin had few answers to the burning questions surrounding the plane's fate.

Asked whether it was possible the plane had been hijacked or disintegrated mid-air, he said nothing could be ruled out.

"We are looking at every angle. We are looking at every aspect of what could have happened," he said.

"Again, we have to get concrete evidence ... we have to find the aircraft."

More than 150 Chinese are among the missing passengers and Beijing's state media on Monday lashed out at Malaysia and its national carrier over their handling of the crisis.

"The Malaysian side cannot shirk its responsibilities," the Global Times newspaper, which is close to the ruling Communist Party, wrote in a scathing editorial.

Debris initially suspected of being the first sign of the wreckage may not be from the missing Malaysian Airlines plane,
