(Flight MH370) Irate relatives decry Malaysian 'wild goose chase'
(03-31 19:32)

At a meeting at a hotel in Beijing today anguished Chinese family members repeatedly pressed Malaysian officials to confirm that finding the plane intact on land was a real possibility.
They reacted angrily when Malaysia Airlines' commercial director Hugh Dunleavy told them there was “no guarantee that we will find the aircraft or the black box. It is a very large ocean and it is very deep.’’
One man accused Malaysia of engaging in a “wild goose chase,’’ saying the search would be considered a “crime that will go down in history'' unless it shifted its focus to land, rather than sea.—AFP
