Investigators have concluded that one or more people with significant flying experience hijacked the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, switched off communication devices and steered it off-course, a Malaysian government official involved in the investigation said late Friday night.
No motive has been established and no demands have been made known, and it is not yet clear where the plane was taken, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media. The official said that hijacking was no longer a theory.
"It is conclusive," he said.
There are no indications what might have happened to the 239 people on board the plane. And, if the plane landed safety at an unknown location or if the plane crashed into the ocean.
