Search for airliner broadens well into Indian Ocean

From FNC’s Justin Fishel:

The USS Kidd will broaden its search well into the Indian Ocean based on shared U.S./ Malaysian intelligence assessments that there is a “higher probability” the aircraft went down in that region, a senior US official tells Fox News.  This official stressed there is no definitive intelligence, just good “indications.”  There are now two main search quadrants that span a large portion of the Indian Ocean.  I’ve roughly sketched the quadrants here (white boxes).  My understanding is that the Indians may cover one quadrant to the north while the US gets the southern quadrant.
