MH370: Show your support
This screengrab from flightradar24.com shows the last reported position of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, Friday night March 7, 2014.
Flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing disappeared in the early hours of Saturday morning, triggering a vast search effort in the South China Sea and sparking grave fears for the 239 people on board. Vietnam authorities said contact with Flight MH370 was lost near its airspace, but its exact location and fate remained a mystery more than 14 hours after it slipped off air-traffic control screens. Frustrated officials and passenger's relatives struggled to make sense of the disappearance of the Boeing 777-200 which -- like the Malaysian national carrier -- has a solid safety record.
The airline said the plane's last known position was a point about 150 kilometres (93 miles) north of Malaysia's eastern coast. Contact with the aircraft was lost at 2:40 am Malaysian time (1840 GMT Friday), about two hours after take-off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, the carrier's CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said. The plane carried 227 passengers and 12 crew members from 14 nationalities. The 153 Chinese passengers included an infant, while 38 Malaysians and 7 Indonesians were also aboard, the airline said. Six Australians, four French nationals, and three Americans including an infant, were also among those listed.
It is during hard times like these that we should all gather as one. A time when background, race, religion and politics are thrown out of the window. A time to show the world that humanity still exists and trumps any ugly form of negativity.
