Full coverage: Malaysia Airlines Plane Bound for Beijing Goes Missing

The first batch of family members of the passengers has arrived in Kuala Lumpur from Beijing. There are twelve relatives--nine Chinese and three Indians. They did not meet with the waiting media. Malaysia Airlines is putting them up in hotels around Kuala Lumpur.

Eleven countries are participating in the rescue and research mission, but no solid clues have been found so far. Vietnam says it will not give up until the Boeing 777 aircraft is located, and it’s going to widen the search.

Flight MH370 left the Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 00:41 a.m. Beijing time on Saturday. It was expected to land in Beijing at 6:30 a.m. Contact was lost when the plane was flying over the Ho Chi Minh air traffic control area in Vietnam at 1:20 a.m. On board are 12 crew members and 227 passengers, including 154 Chinese.
