UK ship joins Chinese vessel that detected pulse signal in Malaysian jetliner search

A UK ship with sophisticated detection equipment, the HMS Echo, has arrived in an area where a Chinese vessel searching for the missing Malaysian plane has twice detected a pulse signal.

Australia's HMS Shield is also investigating a possible third signal elsewhere in the massive search zone.

None has been confirmed as coming from the flight recorders of MH370.

In the meantime, families of the missing passengers are attending a prayer service in Kuala Lumpur.

The plane disappeared four weeks ago with 239 people on board. Investigators believe it crashed in the Indian Ocean, although no confirmed debris has been found.
