Malaysian Airline Families Protest in Beijing

Frustrated relatives of the 153 missing Chinese nationals on the Malaysian Airline’s flight MH370 marched through Beijing today, bound for the Malaysian embassy; the relatives were angered when the government declared the passengers lost despite a lack of physical evidence.

The protestors first tried to board buses to the embassy, but when they were stopped by police continued to carry their protest through the streets of Beijing by foot whilst  wearing t-shirts that read ‘pray for MH370’ and banners reading ‘we want the truth from Malaysia’.

Nearly 100 relatives of the missing MH370 passengers took part in the protest, chanting “Liars!” and “Return our relatives!” for almost 3 hours outside the embassy, where the group presented a letter of protest.

The flight went missing over 2 weeks ago, and is believed to have crashed into the Indian Ocean.
