Malaysia Airline authorities have reportedly announced that the relatives of those onboard the ill-fated Flight MH 370 would be taken to the 'recovery area'.


This comes after Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak officially announced that the Boeing 777 crashed into the southern Indian Ocean and there was no evidence of any survivors.

According to News24, the airline said that when it receives approval from the investigating authorities, arrangements would be made to bring the families to the recovery area.

While a text message was sent to relatives ahead of Najib's announcement saying that the plane was lost, relatives have reportedly called the government and the investigation authorities as 'true murderers,' alleging that they hid facts from them and wasted time and resources in locating the plane when it was first reported missing.

The airline did not specify where the relatives would be taken, but the international search effort, focused on a remote stretch of the southern Indian Ocean, has seen aircraft and ships depart from Perth, on Australia's west coast.

The ill-fated Flight MH370 vanished on March 8th shortly after take off from Kuala Lumpur enroute to Beijing with 239 passengers on board.
