It has been confirmed
that Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 was hijacked.
It is unknown who took the plane over, but whomever did turned off communication devices and took the plane on an undetermined route. Malaysian officials are getting background checks on all 237 people on board.
American officials thought that it could have been an act of piracy, while a Malaysian official said that a highly trained individual must have had control of the plain.
No one knows why this has been done and no terrorist groups have claimed that it was them whom did it.
A British Satellite Telecommunication company has come forward with information in regards to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. The company was able to confirm that signals were received from the plane on March 8th. The information that the company did receive was “routine” and “automated.” The name of the British company is unknown. This company was able to give the information to SITA, which is “a multinational air transport communications and information technology company.” SITA was then able to give the information to Malaysia Airlines
The search for the Boeing 777 aircraft has gone westward from where the plane should have been. The 13 countries that are assisting in the recovery efforts are headed towards India. The U.S. Navy is assisting with the destroyer Kidd. It was originally stationed in the Gulf of Thailand and is now headed toward the West side of Malaysia. Ships, satellites, submarines, and aircraft are searching for the Boeing 777.
Authorities are still unclear as to what actually happened. Investigators thought this was a hijacking because of the two Iranian men with stolen passports. An investigation into these two men has shown that they have no connection with terrorist groups. A news conference happened Friday in Malaysia, where officials said “shutting off of the transponder could indicate that there had been a hijacking.”
"It could have been done intentionally. It could have been done under duress. It could have happened as a result of an explosion’’ said Hishamuddin Hussein, Malaysia’s transportation minister.
The last known location of the plane is between the east coast of Malaysia and southern Vietnam.
