100 days after MH370, Malaysia vows to keep searching

Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia's government pledged today it "will not rest" until missing flight MH370 is found but relatives said on the 100th day since the plane's disappearance that they wanted answers, not more promises.

The Malaysia Airlines flight disappeared on March 8 with 239 passengers and crew, shocking the world and shattering families of those aboard, who still have no idea what happened to their loved ones.

"100 days after MH370 went missing, its loss remains a painful void in the hearts of all Malaysians and those around the world," Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said in a statement.

"We cannot and will not rest until MH370 is found." On Saturday, Prime Minister Najib Razak posted on his Twitter feed the 100th day should be marked by "remembering those onboard and their families.

Malaysia remains committed to the search effort". Malaysia's scandal-prone government has come under fire from anguished relatives over the lack of information which - along with the unprecedented nature of the incident - has fuelled accusations by some families of a cover-up.

Stephen Wang, whose 57-year-old mother was aboard, greeted the renewed Malaysian vow with scepticism. "Malaysia has from the beginning said they will work hard to find the plane, and now we are no further than at the start.

If they keep using this method of working hard, then there's not much hope," he told AFP. (AFP)rdoned off all terrorists bases, including the main town of Mir Ali and Miranshah, headquarters of North Waziristan.
