Members of families of the missing Boeing passengers that gathered near the diplomatic mission’s house demanded from the air carrier and Malaysian government trustworthy information about the plane’s fate.
People began to gather at nearly 11:00 local time (03:00 GMT) before the gates of the diplomatic mission, when Tuesday’s daily conversation with the air carrier’s representatives with the families of the passengers did not take place at the scheduled time.
The protesters held posters saying “Return our relatives”; the crowd was yelling “Explain to us what happened to the plane.” Some of the participants of the rally were throwing bottles with water to police officers that cordoned off the embassy.
Boeing-777-200 was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 227 passengers and 12 crewmembers on board on March 7. Contact with it was lost about two hours after its departure from the Malaysian capital. On Monday, Malaysian Airlines issued a statement that all passengers that were onboard that plane died.
