The disappearance of the Malaysian flight MH370 is an "unprecedented mystery," Malaysia's civil aviation chief said, as a massive air and sea search entered its fourth day Tuesday without any trace of the plane or 239 people on board.Dozens of ships and aircraft from 10 different countries scoured the water between Malaysia and Vietnam as questions mounted over possible security lapses and suspicions that a bomb or hijacking attempt could have brought down the Boeing 777-200ER, which took off from the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur en route to Beijing.About two thirds of the 227 passengers and 12 crew now presumed to have died aboard the plane were Chinese. The airline said that among the other passengers were 38 Malaysians, seven Indonesians, six Australians, five Indians, four French and three Americans.China urged Malaysia to speed up the search for the plane. Both planes were cruising at around 31,000 feet at the time of the blasts.
