Two years on from disappearance of Malaysia Airlines MH370, families of the victims still demand answers, as the investigation continues. Julie Noce reports.
Families, officials mark 2 year anniversary of MH370 disappearance
Families of passengers on board Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 staged a small protest in Beijing on Tuesday, the second anniversary of the flight’s disappearance.
Restart the investigation, they shouted, while holding signs demanding answers.
The plane mysteriously vanished on March 8th while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board.
Investigators believe the plane was flown thousands of miles off course before crashing into the ocean off Australia.
So far, only one piece of the plane’s wreckage has been found- a part of the wing called a flaperon- which was found near Madagascar last year.
International investigators released an interim report on Tuesday but it offered little new information.
In parliament, MP’s stood in silence to mark the occasion.
Prime Minister Najib Razak said in a written statement the search was expected to be completed later this year, and he remained hopeful the aircraft would be found.
