Jojo Malig of ABS-CBNnews.com reports that based on new information gathered by satellites, the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 went down in the southern part of the Indian Ocean, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak announced in a press conference on Monday (March 24).
According to the report, an analysis of satellite data from Inmarsat indicate that the last position of MH370 was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, far from any possible landing sites. In a separate statement, Malaysia Airlines, said it is assuming "beyond any reasonable doubt" that flight MH370 has been lost, with none of those on board surviving the incident.
"On behalf of all of us at Malaysia Airlines and all Malaysians, our prayers go out to all the loved ones of the 226 passengers and of our 13 friends and colleagues at this enormously painful time," the airline company said.
Malaysia Airlines said it will continue its investigation and the search for the missing aircraft to determine the cause of its mysterious disappearance more than two weeks ago.
