To many observers of the tasking search for the missing Malaysian Airplane, countries which have devoted time, craft, ships and finance to this search may actually be growing weary. Or perhaps, the Malaysian authorities were just tired of keeping the relations of the passengers of the MH370 jet in suspense.
Two days ago, the Airline authority told the weary waiting family members of the missing passengers, and the media that the plane had crashed into the Southern part of the India Ocean. His words were: "We have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived,"

This did not obviously go down well with the listeners. Not that they expected to have their relations back alive, but, the manner in which the conclusion was reached left their hearts more miserable.

One relative of a passenger expressed it this way, "If you find something: OK, we accept, but nothing -- just from the data, just from analysis?"

Another, Bimal Sharma, an Indian man whose sister Chandrika was on the plane, said, "I suppose I want to see something from the seas. I don't know why I just want to see some debris off the aircraft and the black box to know what exactly happened because there are too many unanswered questions."

Also, China, who has more citizens in the ill-fated aircraft, was not satisfied with the Malaysian conclusion. They questioned both the Prime Minister and the Airline Authorities, on why they concluded thus, without concrete evidence.

Search was suspended yesterday due to bad weather, but As at today, the search teams have resumed work, and "new satellite images show 122 objects floating in the southern Indian Ocean, near other sightings that may be related to MH 370". The search continues, and it is hope that tangible evidence would be found.
