KUALA LUMPUR: One of the two suspects who used stolen passports to board the missing MH370 flight has been identified.
Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the man has been identified based on CCTV footage gathered from KLIA.
"I can confirm that he is not a Malaysian, but cannot divulge which country he is from yet," said Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar at the Kajang police headquarters yesterday.
When asked if both of the men had immigration records of entering the country, Khalid said that they were in the midst of investigating the issue.
"The man is not from XinJiang China.
"We do not have verification of a Chinese militant group claiming responsibility for the missing plane," he said adding that his personnel were investigating the case from all angles.
He added that they have yet to classify the missing plane as linked to terrorism.
"Let us investigate the matter thoroughly," he said urging the public not to speculate further on the matter.
