Plane search signal 'important lead'

Australian search co-ordinators say a Chinese ship's detection of a pulse signal in the southern Indian Ocean is an "important and encouraging lead".

China advised that the Haixun 01 had redetected the signal for 90 seconds within 24 hours of first picking up the pulse, retired Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston said.

He warned that the data were still unverified.
