SEPANG: Claims that the missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) MH370 aircraft landed at the United States military base Diego Garcia located in the Indian Ocean have been refuted.

Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein told a press conference Sunday that there was also no ransom sought by any party, to date.

"No, there has not. And that makes it very difficult for us to verify whether it was hijacked or an act of terrorism. We are looking into all possibilities. We do not take anything for granted," he said. - Bernama
