A family member (L) of a passenger onboard the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 shouts at Malaysia Airlines Commercial Director Hugh Dunleavy (top, 2nd R, back-facing camera) after his question was declined, at a hotel in Beijing March 15, 2014.


Police began searching the home of the pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight on Saturday, after the country's prime minister confirmed the plane was suspected to have been deliberately diverted, a senior police official told Reuters.
Police officers arrived at the home of the captain, 53-year-old Zaharie Ahmad Shah, on Saturday afternoon, shortly after Prime Minister Najib Razak ended his news conference.
Investigators had confirmed that an aircraft tracked by military radar was the lost Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, after its communications were likely switched off before it reached the east coast of Malaysia a week ago, Najib said.
