New Bermuda Triangle?
Even as there is still no trace of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, a Malaysian politician has sparked outrage after suggesting that there is a “new Bermuda Triangle” in Vietnamese waters.
The ‘Bermuda Triangle’ is the triangular region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean bounded by Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico. It has also been called the Devil’s Triangle because of the reported mysteries that have hounded the spot through the years. Aircraft and shipping vessels have just disappeared without a trace here.
Opposition politician Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin was responding to a tweet by television host Piers Morgan about the plane that vanished with 239 people on board.
The B777-200 aircraft that went missing en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing was carrying passengers from 14 nations, the majority of them Chinese.
Morgan wrote: “Incredible in the modern age that a large hi-tech passenger plane can just ‘disappear’. Praying for a miracle for the 239 people on board.”
Nizar responded: “@piersmorgan @bobkurus new bermuda triangle detected in vietnam waters, well equipped sophisticated devices are of no use!”
