Iranian duo Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad, 19 (left) and Delavar Syed Mohammad Reza, 30, used stolen passports to board the missing MH370 flight.
PETALING JAYA: Interpol has identified the second suspect who used a stolen passport to board the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 flight as Delavar Syed Mohammad Reza, 30, an Iranian, but says the two were "probably not terrorists".
Ronald K. Noble, the international police organisation's secretary-general, said Delavar and the first Iranian suspect - Pouri Nour Mohammadi, earlier identified by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar - flew from Doha to Kuala Lumpur with Iranian passports on Feb 28.
Speaking at a press conference in Lyon, he said they then switched to the stolen Austrian and Italian passports to board the MH370 flight.
Noble, however, played down the possibility that the duo were terrorists.
"There has been speculation about whether or not this was a terrorist attack.
"In the last 24 hours you see the story changing, but it becomes more certain that these individuals were probably not terrorists," he said.
Neither Iranian is listed on the Interpol database.
