Water bottles fly as relatives vent anger over missing MH370
It has been a worrisome four days for everyone concerned with and over the missing MAS flight MH370, no more so than the relatives and friends of pasengers who were on that ill-fated flight.
With few ascertainable facts and a lot of rumours and speculation, the baffling, torturous lack of information prompted frustrated families in China to take it out on four Malaysia Airlines (MAS) employees in Beijing.
Water bottles flew through the air as distraught relatives vented their anger over the lack of information about the missing MH370.
“All Malaysians are liars!” one man yelled in Chinese, the New York Times reported, before adding, “Do you know what ‘liars’ means?”
“Tell him in English,” the Chinese man shouted at one of the four MAS employees, who was the interpreter.
The other three MAS employees were MAS senior managers, including Mr Ignatius Ong Ming Choy, head of a MAS subsidiary budget airline, Firefly.
Throughout the day, MAS staff, many of whom were volunteers, had offered bottled water and helped the families of the Chinese passengers clear the necessary red tape brought on by the disaster: Applying for passports and visas.
The first water bottle flew towards MAS staff after Mr Ong asked who wished to fly to Kuala Lumpur and who wished to stay behind in Beijing.
Today is the third day since MH370 vanished from radar in the early hours of Saturday, March 8.
The Boeing 777-200 aircraft left Kuala Lumpur and was about 40 minutes into its journey to Beijing when it vanished from the skies with 239 people on board.
The aircraft was last detected on radar about 120 nautical miles from Kota Baru.
A multi-country search, involving 34 aircraft and 40 ships, has yet to find the jumbo jet.
