British and U.S. secret services are searching for possible criminal involvement in the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, reports today suggest.

MI6 and the CIA have been helping Malaysian investigators look for reasons behind the Boeing 777 jet’s disappearance after it lost all contact more than three weeks ago on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Malaysia’s Defence Minister Mr Hishammuddin Hussein said the two agencies were working with Chinese spy agencies to try to find out why the plane suddenly changed course and headed to the west with its 239 mainly Chinese passengers and crew.

Mr Hishammuddin declined to put forward his personal thoughts, keeping instead to the official line that investigators were looking into the possibility of terrorism, hijacking, personal or psychologicalproblems among passengers and crew or technical failure.

‘These scenarious have been discussed at length with different intelligence agencies,’ said the Minister.

MI6 agents have been particularly interested in checking out terrorism links following disclosures in a US court by a British man, Saajid Badad, who claimed that in 2001 he gave a shoe-bomb to some Malaysian men who wanted to blow open a plane’s cockpit door and carry out a September 11-style hijacking.

The Minister said that the British, the Americans and the Chinese were ‘all on board’, helping in particular to examine ‘pings’ sent out by the Boeing 777 to look for clues to its flight and whereabouts.

It comes as a US naval officer leading the search for the missing Malaysian Airlines jet admitted today that finding the aircraft’s black box flight recorder was an enormous, if not impossible, task.

The Ocean Shield will join at least 10 ships and eight planes currently searching an area off the west coast of Australia for the missing jet
