Firm to receive up to $70M if MH370 found in new hunt

Kuala Lumpur (AFP) – Malaysia signed a deal with an American firm yesterday to resume the search for MH370 almost four years after the plane disappeared, with the company to receive up to $70 million if successful. The new hunt, which will last 90 days, is expected to start in mid-January when a high-tech vessel leased by the seabed exploration firm, Ocean Infinity, reaches a new search zone in the southern Indian Ocean.
