(Flight MH370) Carrier’s boss certain Boeing 777 and people are lost
(03-25 16:14)

Malaysia Airlines Chairman Mohammed Nor Mohammed Yusof said at a news conference at mid day today in Kuala Lumpur that it may take time for further answers to the mystery of the Boeing 777 that disappeared on route to Beijing.
“This has been an unprecedented event requiring an unprecedented response,'' he said. “The investigation still underway may yet prove to be even longer and more complex than it has been since March 8th.''
He added that even though wreckage had not been found, there was no doubt it had crashed.
“This by the evidence given to us, and by rational deduction, we could only arrive at that conclusion: That is, for Malaysia Airlines to declare that it has lost its plane, and by extension, the people in the plane,'' he said.
The conclusions were based on a thorough analysis of the brief signals the plane sent every hour to a satellite belonging to Inmarsat, a British company, even after other communication systems on the jetliner shut down for unknown reasons.
The latest satellite information cannot provide an exact location but just a rough estimate of where the jet crashed into the sea.
Although there have been an increasing number of apparent leads, there has been no definitive identification of any debris.—AFP
