Malaysia's handling of Flight MH370's disappearance faced new criticism after an interim investigation uncovered a dud beacon battery and more potential missed opportunities to track the plane a year ago.

The international investigation team set up by Malaysia released its interim report.

It contained no new clues on what caused the plane to vanish with 239 passengers and crew aboard. But analysts and next of kin raised questions over some findings, including the revelation that the beacon battery on the flight data recorder had expired more than a year before the flight.
