(Flight MH370) Beijing vigil for missing loved ones
(04-08 11:40)

Family members of passengers on board Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 held a tearful vigil in Beijing in the early hours today to mark one month since contact with the plane was lost on its way to Beijing.
Dozens of family members placed candles in the shape of a heart surrounding an aircraft on the carpeted floor of the capital's Lido hotel.
They sat in a circle around the candles, with some audibly wailing while others remained silent or pressed their palms together in prayer.
“We've been waiting and holding on here for already 31 days,'' said Steve Wang, one of the relatives.
“Don't cry anymore. Don't hurt anymore. Don't despair. Don't feel lost,'' he counselled others who gathered for the vigil. –AFP
