(Flight MH370) No confirmed debris, no closure for families, Malaysia admits
(03-25 18:33)

Relatives of passengers on board the missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, will not be able to experience closure, “until debris is found’’ and confirmed to belong to Flight MH370, Malaysian Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said today at a briefing in Kuala Lumpur, just minutes ago. He is also Acting Transport Minister.
He said the search now was largely “technical and logistical’’ and that the operation is more complex.
Hishammuddin also said the state-owned carrier Malaysia Airlines “will take the lead’’ to communicate with families of passengers and crew on the missing aircraft.—The Standard
