SYDNEY: The multinational team hunting for MH370 will not expand the search zone in the southern Indian Ocean without new clues about the wreck's exact location.

More than 80,000 sq km of seabed have been scoured, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau said on Wednesday (Jan 13) in its weekly update. The search of the full 120,000 sq km area will be completed in the middle of the year, the bureau said.
