MH370 interim report out tomorrow, says transport minister

An interim report on the investigation into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 will be released at 3pm tomorrow. To mark the second anniversary of the disappearance, the Dewan Rakyat will observe a moment of silence. Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the report would be released by the Malaysian International Civil Aviation Organisation Annex 13 Safety Investigation Team for MH370. "Chief investigator Datuk Kok Soo Chon will release the statement via a televised broadcast on RTM 1. "The statement will be uploaded to the official MH370 website where it will first be made available to the next-of-kin only, and subsequently made public at 3pm Malaysian time," Liow said. Liow in his statement said Dewan Rakyat speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia would lead the moment of silence and deliver a special condolence address. On the continuing search for the aircraft, Liow said that nearly 90,000 sq km of the 120,000 sq km search area had been covered so far, yielding more than 500 findings. "After detailed analysis by the experts, none of these findings has provided us with any indication of the missing aircraft so far." Liow said Malaysia was awaiting verification of two more pieces of debris discovered recently in Mozambique and Reunion Island. The Beijing-bound flight MH370 with 239 passengers and crew on board went missing in the early morning of March 8, 2014, after departing from Kuala Lumpur International Airport. – Bernama, March 7, 2016.]]>
