Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370

Iranian passengers have no terror links

11 Mar, 2014

One of the two men using a stolen passport to board the plane has been identified as a 19-year old Iranian student trying to migrate to Germany. He had no links to terrorism, Malaysian police say. Police chief Khalid Abu Bakar says:

We believe he is not likely to be a member of any terrorist group.

Thai police officials state that neither of the two men, who bought their tickets in Thailand, were involved in terrorism. According to a Thai police official,

We haven’t ruled it out, but the weight of evidence we’re getting swings against the idea that these men are or were involved in terrorism.
