    Malaysian investigators are still focusing on the pilot and first officer for a possible motive behind the disappearance of an airliner missing for over a week.

    The co-pilot spoke the last works heard from the cockpit before it is thought someone with specialist knowledge diverted the plane off course.

    Be it suicide, sabotage or catastrophic failure, a search of unprecedented scale stretching from the southern Indian Ocean to the shores of the Caspian Sea in the north is underway.

    Meanwhile distraught families of the missing 239 people on board want answers. Around two thirds of the passengers on flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing were Chinese.

    Many of them accuse Malaysia Airlines and the Malaysian government of a cover-up and incompetence with the slow release of contradictory information.

    Artists in the Philippines have painted a mural as an expression of hope that the passengers and crew can be found.

    While the speculation and theories swirl around this aviation mystery it’s the families who are left struggling with the unknown.
