SEPANG: Former Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has urged the families of passengers of the missing MAS flight MH370 to stay strong.

“What has happened is indeed tragic and I am made aware that the search and rescue team, as well as the authorities, are working very hard to resolve this issue.

“Extensive time and work has been put into this and we are all hoping to hear some good news soon,” he said after attending hajat prayers in KLIA, Sunday.

Abdullah added that approximately 40,000 people had gathered at the Putrajaya mosque to pray for the passengers and their families.

“Hopefully, all these prayers channel positive energy for the passengers to return safely.

“In the meantime we ask of everyone to be patient while the authorities find a way to sort this out,” he said.

Following Abdullah's speech an interfaith prayer session was held for the safe return of the passengers.
