The communication systems of missing flight MH370 were deliberately disabled, Malaysia’s prime minister Najib Razak has confirmed.

Razak said radar and satellite data showed the plane then changed course.

‘‘We can say with a high degree of certainty that the aircrafts communications addressing and reporting system or ACARS, was disabled.

These movements are consistent with deliberate action by someone on the plane,’‘ Razak said.

Razak also said new evidence placed the aircraft in one of two corridors: North from Northern Thailand to Kazakhstan, or south from Indonesia to the southern Indian ocean.

The latest clues to MH370’s whereabouts come as the search for the missing aircraft enters its second week.

Earlier, one Malaysian government official was quoted as saying investigators believed the plane had been hijacked by one of the pilots or someone with flying experience.
