(Flight MH370) Official contradictions and confusion reign
(03-12 12:00)

Frustration over the official response to the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 has risen in Malaysia.
Comments in social media and some press outlets have turned from sympathy for families of relatives to anger over the fruitless search, reports.
“The mood among Malaysians now is moving from patience in the search for the 239 people aboard the missing flight MH370 to embarrassment and anger over discrepancies about passengers, offloaded baggage and concealed information about its last known position,'' Malaysian Insider, a leading news portal, said in a commentary.
Twitter users took aim at contradictory reports, and confusion over whether the Boeing 777 had deviated from its planned flight path.
“If the Malaysian military did not see MH370 turn toward the Malacca Strait, then why the search? Who decided to look there and why?,'' one comment said.
“I think Malaysia Airlines and the Malay government is trying to cover up or hide something about flight MH370,'' wrote another.—AFP
