KUALA LUMPUR: The two men who used stolen passports to board Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that went missing on Saturday were not of Asian appearance, Civil Aviation Department chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman said on Monday.
He told a news conference that after reviewing the CCTV tape many times, "it is confirmed now that they are not Asian-looking men''.
When asked to describe their appearances, he asked: "Do you know a footballer by the name of Balotelli?'' He was referring to AC Milan and Italy striker Mario Balotelli.
Azharuddin also told reporters that all security protocols were complied with at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. - The Straits Times/ANN
