(03-10 12:14)

A Malaysian civil aviation official said just minutes ago that authorities are not discounting the possibility of a hijacking of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight to Beijing.
Civil Aviation Director Azharuddin Abdul Rahman added that all angles are being investigated.
He also refused to be drawn into whether security at Kuala Lumpur airport is deficient, despite repeatedly being pressed by the media at a briefing at noon today.
Azharuddin added that the capital airport security procedures had been checked by overseas organizations including that of the US and Australia. He did not elaborate what they were.
