BEIJING, March 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Malaysian authorities have dismissed media reports saying that the reasons for the disappearance of Boeing 777-200 were hijacking or breakup of the aircraft in the air. Representatives of the Chinese embassy to Kuala Lumpur told this the Xinhua news agency on Tuesday.

The communication with Boeing 777-200 was lost when nearly two hours passed from the departure from Malaysian capital on Friday. The plane on its way to Beijing was supposed to be above the South China Sea in 120 nautical miles from Kota Bharu (Malaysia) in this moment.

According to preliminary data, it had 154 Chinese, 38 Malaysians, 5 Indians, 7 Indonesians, 7 Australians, 4 Americans, 3 French, 2 citizens of New Zealand, Canada and Ukraine, and one Russian and one Dutch on board.
