Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370: Black box detector to head to search zone

The black box locator is expected to arrive in the area in the next couple of days as the hunt continues for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane


Here are minister Hushammiddin Hussein's concluding remarks:

"We understand that it has been a difficult time for all the families. And we appreciate that many families want to see physical evidence before they will accept that MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.

"We find ourselves in a difficult position. I repeat: the question that the families principally want answered, is the question we simply do not have the answer to - namely, where their loved ones are, and where is MH370.

"On Saturday I met with the Malaysian and Chinese families based in Kuala Lumpur. It was the most difficult meeting I’ve ever attended.

"The families are heartbroken. For many, the strain of the past few weeks has been unbearable. But the one message they delivered to me again and again is not to give up hope.

"And I promised the families that Malaysia, working with our international partners, will not give up hope. We will continue with all our efforts to find MH370.

"This is a promise that Malaysia intends to keep. We will continue searching, and we will keep investigating, and we will never give up until we find out what happened to MH370."
