Perth: The search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 ended for the day Thursday with no sightings made in the search area in the southern Indian Ocean yet again and Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said the search operation is "the most difficult in human history".


“At the end of the day, 10 aircraft and nine ships were involved in search activities,” Australia's Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) said in its latest update.

“Three aircraft searched in the southern search area of 248,000 square kilometres, 1,700 km west north west of Perth,” it said.

“There have been no sightings of any objects reported today.”

Stating that the weather in the search area was fair, with visibility approximately 10 km, the JACC said the search area was being continually adjusted and Thursday it moved north.
