Investigators are now convinced the missing Malaysia Airlines plane was hijacked by one or more people with significant flying experience, who switched off communications and diverted the flight, an official involved in the investigation said on Saturday.
But they do not know the motive or where the plane was taken, the unnamed source told Associated Press.
“It is conclusive,” said the Malaysian official, who spoke anonymously because he is not authorised to brief media.
Investigators believe that one or more people switched off communications devices and steered the plane off course, according to the AP source. Full story
