[KUALA LUMPUR] Malaysia said on Thursday that a coastal search needs to be conducted around South Africa and Mozambique for potential debris from missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

A piece of debris was found along the southern coast of South Africa on March 11, while another one was found off the coast of Mozambique this month. "There is a need for us to search the South African coast to find more debris. Malaysia is sending a team there and we are currently awaiting approval from the South African authorities,"said Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai on Thursday. "The coastal search will be by a Malaysian team and focused around South Africa and Mozambique."

Mr Liow, however, said the location for underwater search need not be changed.
