A Chinese ship searching for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 detected a "pulse signal" in the southern Indian Ocean on Saturday, but it was not clear whether it was linked to the missing plane. 

The signal had a frequency of 37.5kHz per second -- identical to the beacon signal emitted by flight recorders, the official Xinhua news agency said.

A black box detector deployed by the Chinese search ship Haixun 01 picked up the signal at about 25 degrees south latitude and 101 degrees east longitude, Xinhua said.
