The relatives of missing passengers of the Malaysia Flight MH370 left the video conference with Malaysia Airlines staff in anger. The relatives in Beijing witnessed technical issues during the video-conference with the airline staff in Kuala Lumpur.
The conference started 20 minutes late and ended abruptly when nearly 200 relatives could only receive visuals but no audio from the Malaysian side.
Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has been reported missing since March 8 2014 when it departed from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The Boeing 777 was accommodating a total of 239 people, including 227 passengers and 12 crew members.
The plane was last detected by radar at a military base at 2:40 a.m. local time near Pulau Perak, and after that Subang air traffic control lost contact with the plane. The station did not receive any distress signal or radio communication regarding any change of course.
The plane’s last identified location was 120 nautical miles off the east coast of the Malaysian town of Kota Bhar.
The investigators are of an opinion that terrorist involvement can possibly be the reason behind the plane disappearance, according to US and European government sources familiar with the investigation. Malaysia’s Special Branch as well as spy agencies in the United States and Europe have not ruled out the possibility that it is an act of terrorism.
