Selangor meneruskan tindakan catuan air di beberapa kawasan sehingga satu masa yang akan ditetapkan berikutan paras air di beberapa empangan di negeri itu masih mencatat bacaan di bawah paras sasaran.

Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Tetap Belia dan Sukan, Infrastruktur dan Kemudahan Awam negeri, Dr Ahmad Yunus Hairi, berkata perkembangan setakat ini memberi gambaran kaedah terbabit perlu dijalankan bagi mengatasi masalah bekalan air yang dihadapi, lapor Selangor Kini.

Katanya, hujan yang mula turun sejak beberapa hari lalu memberi reaksi positif terhadap perubahan dengan jangkaan mencapai sasaran 55 peratus bacaan paras air di empangan mampu dicatat dalam masa terdekat.

‘Sindrom penafian’ yang dihidapi kerajaan Barisan Nasional (BN) adalah penghalang terbesar dalam usaha memulihkan keyakinan masyarakat tentang keselamatan negara dalam mendepani krisis kehilangan pesawat MH370 dan kegagalan Pusat Kawalan Keselamatan Khas Pantai Timur Sabah (Esscom).

Ketua Parlimen DAP Lim Kit Siang mengulas tindakan Pemangku Menteri Pengangkutan Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein yang mengelak daripada menjawab soalan media antarabangsa berhubung cara pengendalian kerajaan yang lemah pada peringkat awal kehilangan MH370.

Dalam sidang media sempena Pameran Perkhidmatan Pertahanan 2014 di PWTC semalam, Hishammuddin membidas soalan media sebagai cubaan membuat spekulasi yang tidak mendatangkan apa-apa manfaat dan berdolak-dalik kononnya kerajaan tidak ingin “memandang ke belakang” dalam menyelesaikan krisis itu.

A robotic submarine has completed its first full 16-hour mission scanning the floor of the Indian Ocean for wreckage of the missing Malaysian airliner after two previous missions were cut short by technical problems and deep water, authorities said on Thursday.

The Bluefin 21 had covered 90 square kilometers (35 square miles) of the silt-covered sea bed off the west Australian coast in its first three missions, the search coordination centre said on Thursday. While data collected by the sub from its latest mission, which ended overnight, was still being analyzed, nothing of note had yet been discovered, the centre said.

A total of 12 planes and 11 ships were to join what could be the final day of the surface ocean search for debris from the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777.

Tempers flared at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) when disgruntled baggage handlers were accused of refusing to unload luggage from a Malindo Air flight from New Dehli.

Mas Zuhairin Zubir, who was among those affected, said passengers had to wait almost three hours for their luggage before they could leave the airport.

“The flight arrived on schedule at 6.15am but I only got my bags at 9.07am,” said the training and development manager.

Mas, 38, said they were left stranded without any assistance from the Malindo Air management. She added that it was Malaysian Airports Holding Berhad (MAHB) security personnel and staff who eventually attended to the fuming passengers.

Bluefin-21, the drone submarine on the hunt for missing flight MH 370, has resumed its search after developing an unspecified technical problem earlier.

The six hours of data gathered on the first dive revealed nothing but the Malaysian authorities are determined to keep searching.

In a media address, acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said: “We will not scale down. This is the promise that I made to the families of the passengers and we will continue. But as we move forward there might be occasions where some of the countries might want to scale down. There are other countries that have come forward and we have to find creative ways to do that.”.
