A view of oil slicks (pale line near the bottom right) spotted in an area of the South China Sea about 100 nautical miles (185 km) from Tok Bali Beach in Malaysia’s Kelantan state March 9, 2014. The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency said it is investigating the oil slicks to determine if they could have come from a missing Malaysia Airlines plane. The missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner may have turned back from its scheduled route before vanishing from radar screens, military officers said on Sunday, deepening the mystery surrounding the fate of the plane and the 239 people aboard.
