According to Malaysia's Inspector General of Police there is no link between the recent roundup of nearly a dozen suspected al-Qaeda-linked militants in Malaysia and the disappearance of Flight 370.

The disappearance of the jetliner has become one of the greatest mysteries in aviation history.

The Boeing 777 took off from Kuala Lumpur nearly two months ago with 239 people on board.

It was bound for Beijing but vanished from radar and never arrived.
