MH370 investigators say they cannot rule out hijacking as 400-page report reveals doomed passenger jet was likely diverted from its flight path deliberately

Investigators probing the MH370 mystery today said they cannot rule out the possibility it was hijacked as they released a 400-page report into the disappearance of the doomed flight.

Officials said the plane, which went missing en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014 with 239 on board had diverted from its flight path manually rather than due to a mechanical fault while ‘interference by a third party’ could not be excluded.

But angry families of those on board remain without definitive answers to one of aviation’s greatest mysteries after experts said they are still unable to say why exactly the Boeing 777 disappeared.

Highest court in Malaysia to hear appeal of Christian converts from Islam

On Monday, the highest court in Malaysia is scheduled to hear the appeal of four people who wish to have their conversions from Islam to Christianity legally recognised.

In a country where there is no legal way to leave Islam, the four people are asking the Federal Court to have their names and their faith changed on their national identity cards.

Three of the four were raised as Christians but converted to Islam in order to marry Muslims. Jenny Peter divorced her Muslim husband in 2006 and returned to Christianity. Salina Jau was divorced by her Muslim husband in 1992, and then she returned to Christianity. Tiong Choo Ting began to practice Christianity after his Muslim wife died in 2007.

All three signed “statutory declarations” that they intended to return to Christianity. They were required to undergo “counselling” regarding their faith. No coercion is exerted in the counselling, which takes place at the state department of religion in two to five sessions running from 30 minutes to an hour. According to court records, “All appelates attended counselling sessions and remained firm in their stand to renounce Islam.”

Laundrette operator: I’m not racist, I just want cleanliness

PETALING JAYA: The operator of a Muslim-only self-service laundrette in Muar says he is not racist as some have claimed but only wants to ensure that cleanliness can be maintained at all times.

“If we look at the issue from an Islamic perspective, cleanliness is very important to us and something we must strive for at all times.
