'Sea-floor event' reported with possible plane link

Beijing - Chinese scientists have detected a "sea-floor event" that could be linked to missing flight MH370 hitting the sea bed, state media said on Friday.

The event was recorded at 2:55 am Saturday (1855 GMT Friday) in waters between Malaysia and Vietnam, the Xinhua news agency quoted seismologists and physicists at University of Science and Technology of China as saying.

This would be nearly one and a half hours after the plane disappeared from radar.

The "non-seismic" area is 116 kilometres northeast of the plane’s last confirmed position, the scientists said.
