Canberra: Authorities in Australian said on Friday that the search area for the missing Malaysian airliner has shifted because of a "new credible lead".
The revised search area comes as the weather cleared in the southern Indian Ocean to allow planes to hunt for fresh clues to the fate of the Malaysian Airline flight MH370 that went missing on March 8, The New Zealand Herald reported.
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) said it shifted the search 1,100 km to the north after receiving a lead based on updated advice provided by an international investigation team in Malaysia.
The new area is 319,000 sq km and about 1,850 km west of Perth.
Australian officials have "examined this advice and determined that this is the most credible lead to where debris may be located," the AMSA said.
