(Flight MH370) Malaysia moves distraught families from hotel to host racing drivers and fans
(03-24 16:22)

More than 30 relatives of passengers on missing flight MH370 have had to move hotels to make way for Formula One teams and fans arriving for the Malaysian Grand Prix, staff said today.
Thirty-two family members, including Chinese nationals, have decamped from two hotels near Kuala Lumpur's international airport, which is also close to the Sepang racetrack, hotel and airline officials told AFP.
“The rooms have been pre-booked before this event happened,'' one hotel official said. A Malaysian Airlines spokeswoman also confirmed the relatives were moved.
The relatives have been staging a fraught vigil after the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 with 239 people on board disappeared shortly after take-off on March 8.
Ministers and government officials working on the case have also been forced to leave the two conveniently located hotels, and daily media briefings have been shifted elsewhere.
