Update on missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370
The mystery of flight MH370 continues to grow 'curiouser and curiouser' with news that 11 terrorists with links to Al Qaeda were interrogated about the missing plane this past Friday, and speculation continues to grow that the plane may have been diverted to a secret location. Along with this come reports that 2 1/4 Tonnes of undocumented, (not on the manifest), cargo was on board the airliner at the time of its disappearance. With still not a shred of evidence that the plane ended up at the bottom of the ocean, one has to consider other scenarios.
In the words of Sherlock Holmes: "When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
Eleven terrorists with links to Al Qaeda have been arrested on suspicion of being involved in the disappearance of MH370
A group of 11 terrorists with links to Al Qaeda were yesterday being interrogated on whether they are behind the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. The suspects were arrested in the capital
Lumpur and in the state of Kedah last week and are
members of a violent new terror group said to be planning bomb attacks in
Muslim countries. The interrogations come after international investigators,
including the FBI and MI6, asked for the militants, whose ages range from 22 to
55 and include students, odd-job workers, a young widow and business professionals,
to be questioned intensively about Flight MH370.
Nearly two months after the Beijing-bound plane vanished soon after take-off from
no trace has been found despite a huge sea search costing hundreds of millions
of pounds. It is thought to have crashed into the Indian Ocean
with 239 people on board. An officer with the Counter Terrorism Division of
Malaysian Special Branch said yesterday the arrests had heightened suspicion
that the flight’s disappearance may have been an act of terrorism.‘The
possibility that the plane was diverted by militants is still high on the list
and international investigators have asked for a comprehensive report on this
new terror group,’ the officer said.
A mystery surrounding the cargo being carried by the missing Malaysian Airlines plane emerged on Friday when it was discovered that it had been loaded with items not specified on the manifest. The aircraft was carrying 4.566 tonnes of mangosteens - an exotic fruit - and a shipment of lithium batteries, which were part of a separate consignment. The batteries weighed 200kg, but that separate consignment totalled 2.453 tonnes. So what was being carried to make up the 2.253 tonnes in that separate shipment?
