US investigators believe someone on board deliberately crashed a China Eastern flight in March, the Wall Street Journal reported, in what was China’s deadliest air disaster in decades.

Investigators probing the crash of a China Eastern Airlines jet are examining whether it was due to intentional action taken on the flight deck, with no evidence so far of a technical malfunction, two people briefed on the matter said.
