Chinese relatives of passengers on board flight MH370 have held a protest in Malaysia claiming they are being deceived by authorities.
The group of 32 family members arrived in Kualar Lumpur from Beijing and held a press conference where they unfurled banners and shouted: “We want evidence! We want truth! We want our loved ones!”
Messages on the banners read: “You must return relatives of MH370, no strings attached” and “Hand us the murderer, hand us the truth”.
The group have been angry and frustrated at what they claim is a lack of new information from authorities, more than three weeks after the Malaysia Airlines plane disappeared.
The airline flew them from Beijing to Kuala Lumpur – the reverse of the route the missing Boeing 777 was on when it vanished from radar screens.
They now plan to meet top officials in the investigation, including Malaysia’s acting transport minister Hishamuddin Hussein.
He previously said the painstaking search for the plane would continue until there is proof the aircraft crashed in the Indian Ocean, insisting “miracles do happen”.
