Report: Chinese ship detects pulse signal in Indian Ocean

It hasn't been established whether it's related to the missing Malaysian jet

A Chinese ship in the Indian Ocean has reportedly detected a pulse signal as teams continue to search for the missing Malaysian jetliner.

It hasn't been established, though, whether the signal is related to the plane.

Crews started searching underwater yesterday, in hopes to detect a signal from the plane's black box before the batteries die.

The batteries last about 30 days, which would be on Monday.

The Boeing 777 went missing last month with 239 people onboard.

    I know it's not essential to the story, but it bothers me that the headline picture used in this is a 4-engine B747, not a 2-engine B777 that was lost. Seems sloppy somehow for the poster not to know, or care.
