Malaysia's civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman has said the fate of a missing Malaysia Airlines jet remains "a mystery". Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished from radar on Friday 7 March, en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur, with 239 people on board.

According to the latest BBC report, officials have not ruled out hijacking as a cause of the plane's disappearance.

Malaysia has also said it was sending ships to investigate a "yellow object" spotted floating in Vietnamese waters.

Relatives of the missing passengers have been told to prepare for the worst.
At a news conference on Monday, Malaysia's armed forces chief also said they were co-operating with Chinese intelligence to identify the two passengers on board flight MH370 who were travelling on stolen passports.

There are now 40 ships and 34 aircraft from nine different nations taking part in the search in the seas off Vietnam and Malaysia.

Late on Sunday, the Vietnamese authorities said two objects had been sighted in waters south of Vietnam which appeared to resemble aircraft parts, including a door.

The debris was in a similar area to a possible oil slick seen by Vietnamese navy planes on Saturday. Families of the passengers and cabin crew are desperately waiting for news of their loved ones.
