Malaysian airliner's flight ended over Indian Ocean, PM says


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak says a new analysis of satellite data shows that the missing Malaysia Airlines plane plunged into the southern Indian Ocean.

Addressing a press conference in Kuala Lumpur, Razak said he informed families of passengers that Flight 370 ended its journey in Indian Ocean, west of Perth.

"It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean," Najib told a press conference, citing new satellite information.

Malaysia Airlines separately sent a text message to families of the passengers Monday evening, saying: “Regret Flight MH370 is lost and no one on board survived”.

Razak said information on the flight’s fate came from the UK Air Accidents Investigation branch through data from Inmarsat.

He added that analysis of satellite data that disclosed the plane’s fate was unprecedented in history.

Flight MH370 vanished from civilian radar screens less than an hour after take-off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing with 239 people on board on March 8.

No confirmed sighting of the plane has been made since, but much debris has been found in remote waters off Australia which might be part of the missing plane.

Possibly. However, There have been so many reports that they may have found something only for it to turn out that they hadn't found anything connected to the plane. At this point I doubt they'll ever find it or find out what happened to it. It's so horrible for the families

While I'm sure the families did need to know what happen so they can have some closure I think it was a little tacky and insensitive to inform them by text

I am still not sure why they believe that this is where the plane crashed. Have they found a large debris field?

It seems so abrupt.

Texting families to confirm fatalities is inhumane.  This incident is tragic and highly questionable.  While I do believe the plane went down, why?  Questions linger.

So the Chinese found more debris? Where is it?
