Semalam pukul 10pm... PM kita Dato Seri Najib ada mengumumkan keadaan semasa MH370 yang terbaru iaitu ia memang terbang di Selatan Lautan Hindi dan kemungkinan terhempas disebabkan sekitar kawasan tersebut tiada tempat mendarat.

Jika benar..takziah saya ucapkan pada semua ahli keluarga penumpang MH370. Penantian 17 hari memang cukup menyeksakan.. Walau pun pahit di telan itulah kenyataannya.. Al-Fatihah untuk semua penumpang MH370 yang beragama Islam dan takziah untuk penumpang lain.

Namun ia tidak menjawab persoalan kenapa MH370 terbang ke Lautan Hindi dan siapa dalangnya?


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.

Based on their new analysis, Inmarsat and the AAIB have concluded that MH370 flew along the southern corridor, and that its last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth.

This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.

We will be holding a press conference tomorrow with further details. In the meantime, we wanted to inform you of this new development at the earliest opportunity. We share this information out of a commitment to openness and respect for the families, two principles which have guided this investigation.

Malaysia Airlines have already spoken to the families of the passengers and crew to inform them of this development. For them, the past few weeks have been heartbreaking; I know this news must be harder still. I urge the media to respect their privacy, and to allow them the space they need at this difficult time.
