In an emergency press conference held in Kuala Lumpur Malaysian Minister Najib Razak informed that no one survived the Flight MH370 accident.
The MH370 went missing with 239 people onboard, and it has now been confirmed that it had crashed off the coast of Perth, Australia.
Just before the public announcement, Malaysia Airlines informed the relatives of the missing 239 people about their find.
The communication below was shared with the family members of passengers and crew of MH370:
“Malaysia Airlines deeply regrets that we have to assume that MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean. As you will hear in the next hour from Malaysia’s Prime Minister, new analysis of satellite data suggests the plane went down in the Southern Indian Ocean.
“On behalf of all of us at Malaysia Airlines and all Malaysians, our prayers go out to all the loved ones of the 226 passengers and of our 13 friends and colleagues at this enormously painful time.
“We know there are no words that we or anyone else can say which can ease your pain. We will continue to provide assistance and support to you, as we have done since MH370 first disappeared in the early hours of 8 March, while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
“The ongoing multinational search operation will continue, as we seek answers to the questions which remain. Alongside the search for MH370, there is an intensive investigation, which we hope will also provide answers.
“We would like to assure you that Malaysia Airlines will continue to give you our full support throughout the difficult weeks and months ahead.
“Once again, we humbly offer our sincere thoughts, prayers and condolences to everyone affected by this tragedy.”
Earlier today, the P3 Orion discovered two objects in the Indian Ocean which could possibly be related to the Flight MH370.
Of the two objects spotted, the first is a grey or green circular object and the second is an orange rectangular object.
The HMAS Success, which was on site during the entire search, is attempting to locate the objects seen from P3 Orion.
As CNN reports the objects could be retrieved within the next few hours or by tomorrow morning, the Australian authorities informed.
Prime Minister Najib Razak announced that more information about the search for the plane will be given on Tuesday.
According to the Voice of America, the U.S. Pacific Command said it was sending a specialized locator to assist in the recovery of the vital “black box” flight recorder in the hope a debris field is located.
The locator device is capable of receiving the black box transmitter signals from a depth of 6,100 meters.
