Malaysia Prime Minister: Flight MH370 ended in the Indian Ocean

Malaysia’s Prime Minister Najib Razak announced yesterday that according to new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.

The prime minister said that analysis by a British company has concluded that the last position of flight MH370 was in the southern Indian Ocean.

“This is a remote location … it is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean,” Razak said.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 went missing more than two weeks ago after taking off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing with more than 200 passengers on board. French and Chinese airplanes looking for debris of the jet had spotted several objects in the ocean on Monday.

Flight MH370 disappeared from civilian radar 16 days ago, nearly an hour after taking off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing.

Chinese passengers comprised two-thirds of the 239 people aboard the Boeing-777.
