Moving now to some of the top stories on the global front
From the continuing search for the Malaysia Airlines jet that disappeared last week to another brutal knfie attack in China, we go live to our Paul Yi at the news center.

Paul it's been seven days since Flight 370 disappeared. Has there been any progress in the investigation?

Unfortunately, there's still no sign of the Boeing triple-7 and the 2-hundred-thirty-nine people who were on board.
The government of Malaysia has denied recent reports that the plane could have flown for four hours after vanishing from radar screens.
Investigators said Thursday that a satellite detected five to six hourly, electronic pings from the aircraft after it went missing.
Officials, however, say it's still hard to know where the jet was headed and where it went down.

How about the search efforts?

U.S. officials say they are widening their search for the aircraft, shifting their focus west towards the Indian Ocean.
India has deployed ships, aircraft and helicopters to the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea to search for debris.
The Korean government will also send two military aircraft to Malaysia on Saturday to assist with the search.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 took off from Kuala Lumpur on Saturday but vanished from radar en route to Beijing after being in the air for only about one hour.
