— Malaysia Airlines says a flight heading to India made an emergency landing in Kuala Lumpur after it was forced to turn back when its right landing gear malfunctioned.

The airline said on its Facebook page that Flight 192 to Bangalore, India, carrying 166 people, landed safely at Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 1:56 a.m. Monday, about four hours after it departed.

The airline says the right landing gear of the Boeing 737-800 "malfunctioned upon takeoff."

The flight left Kuala Lumpur at 10:09 p.m. Sunday and was scheduled to reach Bangalore about 90 minutes later.

Searchers are continuing to look for a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 that disappeared March 8 on an overnight flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
