The Malaysian government has issued a statement they will stop the search for Flight 370. This statement has been deemed insensitive and poorly executed due to the fact it was issued via text message to the victim’s families.
“Malaysia Airlines deeply regrets that we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived. As you will hear in the next hour from Malaysia’s Prime Minister, we must now accept all evidence suggests the plane went down in the Southern Indian Ocean.”
The Chinese government issued an opposing statement, stating they will not give up the search demand concrete evidence of what happened to the plane and its passengers.
“We will have to face unexpected and extraordinary challenges.”
Search efforts for the Malaysia Airlines plane missing in the southern Indian Ocean were set back today due to inclement weather conditions, new satellite images have emerged showing about 300 new objects floating nearby, officials said. Malaysian and Chinese ship crews were searching two search zones covering roughly 30,000 square miles, trying to find clues into the plane's March 8 disappearance. So far, no objects connected to the missing plane have been recovered.
