Opposition lawmakers on Thursday staged a walkout in protest of the ejection of Azmin Ali (Gombak- PKR) and Mohamed Hanipa Maidin (Sepang-Pas) from Dewan Rakyat.

Azmin was ejected from Dewan following a heated argument with the speaker in Parliament with regards to a motion of his condemning the judges of the Sodomy II trial, which was disregarded by the speaker.

Azmin during a press conference said the speaker had told him that priority should be given to motions raised by the Government as that is the law.

The latest 'ping' has been detected near where the Australian defence vessel Ocean Shield found signals earlier in the week


A fifth signal has been detected in the Indian ocean that Australian authorities believe to be man-made, in a further indication the search is narrowing for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

The head of Australia's joint agency coordination centre, Angus Houston, said late on Thursday the latest ping had been detected by an Australian AP-3C Orion aircraft near the location where the Australian defence vessel Ocean Shield had picked up signals earlier in the week.

Underwater "pings" are the strongest clues yet to the whereabouts of the missing Malaysian plane, flight MH370. Two batches of these ultrasound signals have now been detected by an Australian ship 1600 kilometres north-west of Perth.

"I believe we are now searching in the right area," said Angus Houston, head of the Joint Agency Coordination Centre that is managing the multinational search operation from Perth, at a press conference this morning.

Planes carry two flight recorders – the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) and the flight data recorder (FDR). Both are equipped with an underwater location device that emits regular ultrasound pulses, aka pings, for 30 days after they are submerged.
