[CANBERRA] The hunt for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 will focus on the southern part of the existing search zone after a new clue to the plane's possible location emerged, Australia said on Thursday.

Fresh information suggested the jet "may have turned south" earlier than thought, Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said.

The detail came to light following "further refinement" of satellite data and as investigators attempted to map the plane's position during a failed bid to contact it earlier in its flight path.
