Malaysia's defense minister has denied reports that engine data from the missing Malaysian jetliner indicated it may have kept flying for four hours after its last communication.
    
Acting Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein was referring to reports that the Rolls Royce engines aboard the Boeing 777 automatically sent data to the engine manufacturer as part of a maintenance program.
    
The Wall Street Journal said U.S. officials suspect the plane continued flying for four hours after its last contact, based on data from the engines.
    
Hishammuddin said Thursday that both Rolls Royce and Boeing said that report was wrong.
