(03-25 16:06)

A concert to mark Malaysia's Formula One Grand Prix weekend featuring singer Christina Aguilera has been cancelled, the event sponsor, the state oil company Petronas said.
Petronas, which sponsors the Mercedes F1 racing team and the annual concert, said it called off the show as “a sign of respect to the families and next-of-kin of the crew and passengers of flight MH370.’’
The concert was to be held Friday and Saturday at the Kuala Lumpur Twin Towers and feature Aguilera, Korean star Rain and R&B musician Craig Davis.
“It is truly a tragedy and we are deeply saddened about the crew and passengers of flight MH370,'' said a statement by Petronas on the concert's Facebook page.
