The head of the US Central Intelligence Agency said that terrorism could not be ruled out in the disappearance of a Malaysian airliner, describing the plane's fate as a "mystery."

CIA Director John Brennan said there had been reports of claims of responsibility for downing the missing jet, but stressed that these were far from confirmed.

Brennan provided no further details, but his comment was the first reference by a US official to any alleged claim of responsibility over the jet's fate.

Malaysian authorities have doubled the search radius to 100 nautical miles around the point where the Boeing 777 disappeared from radar over the South China Sea.
