Malaysia's acting transportation minister said Tuesday that authorities searching for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet will review an Australian company's claims that the wreckage might be in the Bay of Bengal — thousands of miles outside the current search area, according to USA TODAY.
Hishammuddin Hussein expressed some skepticism but said the claim, from exploration firm GeoResonance, will be discussed by the International Investigation Team overseeing the search.
"There have been too many speculations out there. ... It is impossible to entertain them all," he said in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia's capital. "However, the search mission is still ongoing and the status quo remains."
