A major shift in the search area for the missing Malaysian flight MH370.

The air search in remote seas off west Australia resumes on Friday, seeking to confirm satellite sightings of possible debris from the missing jet.

But the focus of the search has been shifted to an area 1,100 kilometers northeast of where planes had been looking for, based on a new, "credible" lead.

The plane, with 239 people on board, is believed to have crashed into the southern Indian Ocean, after disappearing from civilian radar nearly three weeks ago, during a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
