Family of MH370 Passengers Stage Protest

Chinese relatives of those missing on Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 staged a protest outside the airline’s Beijing offices on Thursday, angered at the apparent mixed messages being delivered over whether or not part of the doomed plane has been bound.

Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak said on Wednesday that experts in France had “conclusively confirmed” the wing part found on an island in the Indian Ocean was from the aircraft.

But French investigators stopped short of confirming the link, only saying it was highly likely. French prosecutor Serge Mackowiak has said only that there are “very strong indications” that the flaperon does belong to MH370, adding that confirmation would only come after further tests.
