KUALA LUMPUR - The international search for a missing Malaysian airliner has been expanded into the Andaman Sea, hundreds of kilometres (miles) to the northwest of the original search radius, an official said Wednesday.
 
"Yes, above Sumatra is the Andaman Sea," Malaysian civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman told AFP when asked to confirm whether ships and planes were searching for missing flight MH370 there.
 
Sumatra is a large Indonesian island south of the Andaman Sea. The body of water is off Thailand's west coast.
 
Earlier, Vietnam said it is suspending air search for missing Malaysian jet
