Australian officials say the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane has been suspended because of bad weather and rough seas.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority said high winds and rain meant planes could not fly safely.

Earlier, China demanded to see satellite data that led Malaysia to conclude that flight MH370 had crashed in the southern Indian Ocean.

Most of the 227 passengers on the Malaysia Airlines flight were Chinese.

Search operations should resume tomorrow if weather conditions permit.

Australia is co-ordinating the search in the so-called "southern corridor", now believed to be where the plane crashed.
