Mistrust hampers search for Malaysian plane

Critics say disorganised search effort of missing aircraft highlights how Asian neighbours do not cooperate enough.

    Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has said there was "increasing hope" of finding missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, after a plane spotted more debris near the search site.

    But many observers say what happened after the plane vanished, only highlights how nations in Southeast Asia do not cooperate enough.

    The South China Sea has been identified as a potential flashpoint, with several countries including Malaysia and China, having competing territorial claims.
