Najib Razak gave an official statement to families and friends to the passengers on board which read that the few pieces that were discovered in the Indian Ocean last week are most likely the parts from the missing plane.
“It is with deep sadness and regret that new data (indicates) flight MH370 ended in the Southern Indian Ocean,” Najib revealed. There’s more information coming through by the hour — we don’t actually know if the passengers were still on the plane.
“This evening I was briefed by representatives from the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB).”
“They informed me that Inmarsat, the UK company that provided the satellite data which indicated the northern and southern corridors, has been performing further calculations on the data. Using a type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort, they have been able to shed more light on MH370’s flight path.”
A handful of objects have been found in the ocean west of Perth which are still being analyzed. As further information comes through, we’ll be updating this story.
This is so tragic and sad. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends.
