(Flight MH370) Malaysian envoy in Beijing becomes magnet for verbal abuse and rage
(03-25 19:10)

Malaysia's ambassador to China Iskandar Sarudin arrived today at the hotel where relatives are staying, to face a tirade from relatives who had earlier scuffled with guards outside the country's embassy in Beijing.
Some shouted at him to kneel before them, while others directed a volley of abuse, calling him a “liar,’’ “rogue’’ and “bastard.’’
Officials from the State Council, China's cabinet, met family members afterwards.
Earlier today, scuffles broke out when uniformed security personnel tried to block some relatives from reaching reporters outside the Malaysian embassy in the capital.
“Return our relatives,'' the family members shouted as uniformed police and plainclothes security protected the embassy gates. Another slogan went: “The Malaysian government are murderers.''
“My son, my son, return my son!'' screamed Wen Wancheng, 63, as relatives behind him chanted slogans, raising their fists. Behind him, others bowed their heads and sobbed.--AFP
