MH370 Relatives To Hold Hunger Strike

Relatives of those onboard the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 will reportedly go on a hunger strike today over Malaysia's failure to confirm what happened to the aircraft. Many of the family members also staged a silent protest yesterday when they marched to the Malaysian embassy just before midnight. The family's fury has mounted since the aircraft went missing 49 days ago. Officials are yet to find any debris, confirm the whereabouts of the plane, or discover what happened to it. The protests follow a recent dispute between Malaysian officials and family members who are staying at the Lido Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, while investigations continue. The Malaysian government has submitted a report to the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), which is likely to be made public next week.
