An underwater search for missing Malaysia airlines flight MH370 will take place further south within the same "seventh arc" of the Indian Ocean previously trawled for wreckage, the Australian Deputy Prime Minister has said.

"The new priority area is still focused on the seventh arc, where the aircraft last communicated with satellite. We are now shifting our attention to an area further south along the arc based on these calculations," Warren Truss said.
