Mini-sub on second mission after first MH370 search aborted
Perth (Australia) (AFP) - A mini-sub searching for missing Flight MH370 was again sweeping the Indian Ocean seabed Wednesday after drawing a blank on a first mission aborted at daunting depths in a laborious operation that could take months. The unmanned submarine equipped with sonar gear was deployed Tuesday night after data analysis of the first failed foray produced nothing of interest, Australia's Joint Agency Coordination Centre said. "The autonomous underwater vehicle was again deployed last night (Tuesday) from ADV (Australian Defence Vessel) Ocean Shield," JACC said. No objects of interest were found," JACC said.

Man City stay ready to pounce if Liverpool slip up
Manchester (United Kingdom) (AFP) - Manchester City know they must keep themselves in a position to pounce if Premier League title favourites Liverpool slip up when they play the first of their two games in hand against bottom club Sunderland on Wednesday night. Liverpool's 3-2 victory at Anfield on Sunday allowed the Reds to stay clear at the top of the table and extend their advantage over third-placed City to seven points. That will be an unbridgeable gap if Liverpool win their remaining four games to lift their first top-flight championship since 1990. But Brendan Rodgers's side still have to face title rivals Chelsea, giving a glimmer of hope to City who would finish top if Liverpool fail to win just one of their games and City take a maximum 18 points.
