#MH370: Missing Plane Has Not Landed At Diego Garcia

There were reports that MH370 was re-directed to Diego Garcia following confirmation that the aircraft had made an ‘air turn back’.

However, acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said that the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 did not land on Diego Garcia, British India Ocean Territory as what is claimed.

According to the New Straits Times, the acting Transport Minister said that there was also no ransom sought by any party, to date.

Datuk Seri Hishamuddin, who is also the defense minister said, “No, there has not. And that makes it very difficult for us to verify whether it is hijacked or terrorist (act of terrorism). (We look into) all possibilities. We don’t take (anything) for granted”.
