KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian military believe it tracked the missing flight MH370 on its radar to the Strait of Malacca, a military source has told Reuters.
The fate of the Malaysian airliner that vanished about an hour into a flight to Beijing remained a mystery, as a massive air and sea search, now in its third day, failed to turn up any trace of the Boeing 777 plane.
Interpol has named the second suspected passenger travelling on stolen passport in the missing plane, Delavar Seyed Mohammadreza, while first one was named as Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad 18, from Iran, who probably moving towards Germany, BBC reported.
Malaysian police said Tuesday they had identified one of two men who boarded a missing Malaysian jet with fake passports as a 19-year-old Iranian believed to be seeking to emigrate to Germany.
“We believe he is not likely to be a member of any terror group and we believe he was trying to migrate to Germany,” said Malaysia’s national police chief Khalid Abu Bakar.
“Everybody who booked this flight boarded the plane,” Bakar said.
Khalid said authorities had not yet identified the other man.
So far, theories as to what might have happened to the plane have often served to deepen the mystery.
Two passengers using passports on the missing Malaysia Airlines flight were recorded in Interpol’s Stolen and Lost Travel Documents database, the international police organization confirmed on Sunday.
Officials started investigating terrorism concerns Saturday after authorities in Vienna and Rome confirmed that thenames of two passengers — an Italian and an Austrian — listed on the manifest of missing flight MH370 matched those of two people who weren’t on the plane who had their passports stolen.
