    French aviation investigators to launch MH370 probe 'from scratch'

    French aviation authorities are to open a new investigation into the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, days after a report effectively cleared the pilots of any deliberate act to bring the plane down. The SR-GTA — the research section of the Gendarmerie of Air Transport — wants to re-examine the satellite data or "pings" that led earlier investigators to conclude the plane crashed somewhere along an imaginary arc in the Indian Ocean, after veering off-course on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014.

    Malaysia government proposes 10 years in jail for fake news

    Malaysia’s government proposed new legislation Monday to outlaw fake news and punish offenders with a 10-year jail sentence, a move slammed as an attempt to silence dissent ahead of a general election. Prime Minister Najib Razak has been dogged by a multibillion-dollar corruption scandal involving an indebted state fund, and rights activists fear the new law could be used to criminalize news reports and critical opinions on government misconduct.
