MALAYSIA is stepping up to criticism from international media on its poor handling of the missing MH370 plane with 239 people onboard, amid a dizzying maze of contradictory and confusing information which has angered family members of the passengers.
Yesterday, Malaysian officials faced the media again on their search efforts, and gave their most detailed explanation yet of the ongoing search while debunking stories swirling about how the aeroplane disappeared.
Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein dismissed a Wall Street Journal story, citing anonymous US investigators, that said the plane had continued to fly for hours after Malaysia lost contact with it.
