Terrorism Possible in Missing Malaysian Jet
Malaysian authorities have not ruled out a terror attack scenario for the aircraft which went off the radar on Saturday.
Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared with 239 passengers on board while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing early Saturday local time. The aircraft went off the radar south of Vietnam, according to reports of the BBC News.
The suspicions of a possible terror attack were triggered by the fact that Italian and Austrian officials said two people listed as passengers on the flight had not boarded the plane and had reported their passports stolen in Thailand.
Malaysian Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said the authorities were examining four possible cases of suspect identities in cooperation with the FBI and other intelligence agencies.
The aircraft has been missing for more than 24 hours. Rescue teams are searching the area of the South China Sea south of Vietnam and the west coast of Malaysia.
