Malaysia examines footage of suspicious passengers

Kuala Lumpur - Malaysian investigators are examining video recordings of two passengers who used stolen passports to board the ill-fated Malaysian Airline passenger jet missing for three days, a senior official said Monday.

"The investigative team is now going through all the records, going through all the video footage," Azhaddin Abdul Rahman, deputy head of the Civil Aviation Authority, said in a press briefing.

Malaysia is considering all angles that might shed light on the fate of the Boeing 777-200 plane bound for Beijing, that left Kuala Lumpur International Airport before dawn on Saturday and disappeared from the radar an hour later.

Malaysian Home Minister Zahid Hamidi said Sunday the two passengers, who reportedly used passports stolen earlier from an Austrian and an Italian, had "Asian facial features."
