Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: Some Data Deleted From Flight Simulator

Some information has been deleted from the flight simulator found at the home of the pilot, Malaysian Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said. Forensics is trying to recover it, he said.

At Wednesday's news conference, he also said:

- Malaysian authorities have received background information from all countries with passengers on board the plane except Russia and Ukraine. So far, no information of significance has been found, he said.

- Malaysia has received some radar data, but "we are not at liberty to release information from other countries."

- Reports that the plane was sighted by people in the Maldives are "not true."

"I can confirm that the Malaysian Chief of the Defence Force has contacted his counterpart in the Maldives, who has confirmed that these reports are not true," Hishammuddin said.

Former accident investigator Steven Wallace speaks to the report that the pilot's simulator was found with data missing.
