Chinese investigators are set to help Malaysia's government in the search for missing flight MH370. On Monday French experts arrived to add their weight to the growing international hunt. (SOUNDBITE)(English) JEAN-PAUL TROADEC, FORMER DIRECTOR OF BUREAU D'ENQUETES ET D'ANALYSTES, SAYING: "I don't think there is any sense in starting a search in the sea as long as we have not located any debris because the uncertainty zone for the moment is huge and there is no sense in starting searches under the sea when we don't have a more precise idea of the plane's location." Australia's taken charge of scouring the Indian Ocean as the search for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing widens. Prime Minister Tony Abbott said the measure was in response to a direct request from his Malaysian counterpart. (SOUNDBITE)(English) AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER TONY ABBOTT SAYING: "He asked that Australia take responsibility for the the search in the southern vector which the Malaysian authorities now think was one possible flight path for the ill-fated aircraft. I agreed that we would do so. If offered the Malaysian Prime Minister additional maritime surveillance resources which he gratefully accepted." On Sunday India, one of up to 25 nations involved in the search for the missing plane, put its operations on hold while Malaysia reassesses the hunt, now into its second week. Flight MH370 vanished with 290 passengers and crew on board on March 8th. A huge air and sea search has found no trace and there is growing evidence that the plane's disappearance was carefully planned. Investigators are increasingly convinced the aircraft was deliberately steered way off its intended course by someone with enough knowledge to disable the plane's automatic tracking systems. Background checks are underway on all those on board the jet as the mystery of Flight MH370 deepens by the day.
