CNN：Malaysian airliner's flight ended over Indian Ocean, PM says
(CNN) -- Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 wentdown over the southern Indian Ocean, MalaysianPrime Minister Najib Razak said Monday, citing a newanalysis of satellite data by a British satellite company and accident investigators.
The announcement appeared to rule out thepossibility that any one could have survived whatever happened to the aircraft,which vanished more than two weeks ago with 239 people aboard.
As Razak spoke, airline representatives metwith family members in Beijing."They have told us all lives are lost," one relative of a missingpassenger told CNN.
The developments happened the same day asAustralian officials announced they had spotted two objects in the southern Indian Ocean that could be related to the flight, whichhas been missing since March 8 with 239 people aboard.
One object is "a grey or greencircular object," and the other is "an orange rectangularobject," the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said.
The objects are the latest in a series ofsightings, including "suspicious objects" reported earlier Monday bya Chinese military plane that was involved in search efforts in the sameregion, authorities said.
Comments： Your Braces Have Hairs A closure, a sad closure. Now I'm freaking sad.
Red dust l I think most people assumed this was themost likely out come but it still doesn't tell us why it happened.
Pop disaster x Exactly. This is just another step in anincredibly long process to actually find out what H A P P E N E D during thatflight.
Undeclared Function There's a lot of unanswered questions.
Ka sh_ if They will continue to search for the planeand if they manage to locate the black box hopefully it would answer some ofthese questions.
Pep pered butter I wonder what this means for the hijackinghypothesis?
Engineer Who now How can they confirm such a thing if therehave not been recovered actual pieces of the plane that may prove it crashed inthe ocean? Really, although the ocean crash may be the strongest theory, theMalaysian authorities should minimize the continuos misinformation that hasbeen surrounding this case from the very beginning.
Sixty nine nicely This was the ending I was waiting for but Ireally wanted to believe that some how every one was still alive just waitingto be found with the plane. I'm sure the families felt the same way. What ahorrific ordeal. My heart breaks for every one involved.
Gast l y Sadly, there was no scenario I could seewhere those people were alive and even though there is no clear evidence (thatthey are showing us), I think most people knew this was the most likely out come.
N Donkey Man This basically means that the Malaysiangovernment have declared there were no survivors. I can't imagine what thefamilies of the lost are going through :(
Brown hops l Sad. Malaysia did a poor job of handlingthis, but that plane was doomed the moment it went missing. I don't think any onecould have been saved.
E m man Malaysian airliner's flight ended over Indian Ocean, PM says. Show us the plane wreckage ordebris or it didn't happen.
Y G S O U L This is horrible but I'm relieved that thefriends and family of the victims finally know where the plane ended up. Restin peace..
Golden shoe l Let's hope they manage to find some of thedebris
Scrap pin danny Such a tragedy.
H b_ alien So, in a couple of months it's going to befound in the Himalayas, right?
T u n a I knew it was climate change that causedthis disaster. It's so obvious now!
Andy M We are reporting it crashed into the ocean. . . with Z E R O actual evidence. Looks like a P R move by the Malaysians.
D o u g Where is the breaking news? Did theyactually find some thing or do they just want this problem to go away?
Lisa H This explains why family members have beenasked to come to a hotel in Bei jing.
Commenter l l BREAKING NEWS: Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 isstill missing.
Sea Turt 1e Wondering if any one survived the impact,then floated for days before succumbing while everyone was searching off thecoast of Vietnam.
James z Translation: We still don't know where the planeis.
M k e I'm sorry but you got ta give me moredetail than saying satellite data confirms the plane crashed into the Indian ocean Prime Minister whatever your name is. Thatsounds like a cover up or simply rush to judgment for the sake of the survivorsclosure.
Mar cos D this will be a big relief for every one thefamily members and the ones that have been keeping up with this story.
dead head I am still wondering where the plane isreally located. Probably never find out.
S h a k Malaysian are the new confirmed dumbestinvestigators on the planet now.
Holy bull I've been saying this for two weeks. Isthere no thing new to report aside from what we already knew?
Nasty Black Tv vat C N N：Malaysian airliner's flight ended over Indian Ocean, PM says. After 18 days and now they come out with this! That makes the theory that the plane issome where in Pakistanmore believable.
L o u Hopefully all 239 people will be foundsafely floating on a raft and drinking out of coconut shells and eating littlebags of peanuts.
B I l l Condolences for the families. The Americangovernment announced within 3 days that they had "indications" theplane went down in the southern part of the Indian Ocean.For me, that pretty much answered the question of where the plane was ....
Thomas J how for sure do they know it crashed? andwhy don t they say?
K J This will never be over until they saidfound the plane or human bones.
Ha rold I won't believe it until they confirm thatit is the missing plane.
Alien l l I was actually expecting a breakthrough inthe search it self......
Cas per Malaysian airliner's flight ended over Indian Ocean, P M says. So Malaysia just announced theirguess.....What a country! People who fly should avoid this airline at allcosts.
Blue Pit Bull I don't believe them. I will if plane isfound at the bottom of it or debris there at that area but so far no thing.
Dio med Sounds like a lot of assumptions.
No justice n peace The U S government has been saying thissince the 2nd or 3rd day.
Me lak neee no plane, no proof. It s sad to hear thefamilies wasn't notified first.
Sro dolf f I, for one, do not believe any thingMalayisa has to say on the matter of MH370. I want proof.
Spi no C I don't trust the Malaysian government.Where is the evidence?!
Nel lek_ God My condolences to all families and friendsof those onboard this flight if the worst is to happen.
Grape Brain Isn't the earth completely covered by satellites?How do we not just know where the plane is at all times?
Beal l A I'm sorry but the more I hear, the more Ithink they're hiding some thing.
Cheek aling it There's no debris found and confirmed sofar, only satellite analysis.. I wonder if the passengers were alive and justwaiting to die for hours.
Lan di ta I can't believe that they only said that. Ithink we need more in fo. I feel so sorry for the families :(
Buckets- of- blood I don't believe it, proof or they're lying.
Rust ci fy The families should not accept this , Imean what is the exact reason that caused the plane to fly the oppositedirection
Scholes_ S C W e l l I hope they release more detailssoon, this seems all pretty weird to me.
Ko va ce How long until the black box is no longeruseable?
Always z Pro I wanted it to have landed in Pakistanand be held by the terrorists.
