Police question ground staff of missing Malaysia Airlines plane

Kuala Lumpur - Investigators were questioning the ground crew of the missing Malaysia Airlines jet after Prime Minister Najib Razak disclosed that the aircraft's disappearance was a "deliberate" act, a police source said Sunday.

The source said investigators talked to some ground staff who had contact with flight MH370 before it left Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8, to find out if they knew anything that could provide clues to the missing aircraft.

"So far there are no positive results," he said, without giving the number of how many ground staff have been questioned. On Saturday, police searched the homes of the pilot and co-pilot of the missing Malaysian Airlines jet, a few hours after Najib said the plane’s communication system was intentionally disabled and the aircraft flew for as much as seven hours to an unknown destination.
