Officials suspended an aerial search for a missing South Korean jetliner Thursday and said they are convinced that it exploded and plunged into the Andaman Sea with 115 people aboard. South Korean officials say they believe a bomb was planted on the Korean Air jet and blame Communist North Korea. The Boeing 707 disappeared Sunday on a flight from Baghdad, Iraq, to Seoul via Abu Dhabi and Bangkok, Thailand.

An attempt by Japanese authorities to find a match for the fingerprints of a mystery man linked to a missing South Korean jetliner was unsuccessful, a Japanese official said Friday. Other officials had suggested that the mystery man--who killed himself with poison this week after being detained for questioning on the fate of Korean Air Flight 858--might be a Korean using the Japanese name Akira Miyamoto. Miyamoto was one of two suspects in a 1983 North Korean spy scandal in Japan.
