China deployed 21 satellites to scour its territory for the missing Malaysian jetliner, while Australia said it had drastically narrowed its sector of the search area but was still looking in an expanse of ocean the size of Spain and Portugal.Malaysia said on Tuesday it had conferred with the U.S. and Chinese ministers on the search for Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370, an unprecedented 26-nation operation that now spans Asia from the Caspian Sea to the southern Indian Ocean.Intensive background checks of everyone aboard have so far failed to find anyone with a known political or criminal motive to crash or hijack the plane, Western security sources and Chinese authorities said.The Thai military had previously said it had not detected any sign of the plane.The plane may have flown for another six hours or more after dropping off Malaysian military radar about 200 miles northwest of Penang Island.Hishammuddin added that he had spoken to U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and "my counterpart in China" about the search for the plane, now in its 11th fruitless day.
