Family members receive message from Malaysian government on missing plane

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) - Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak says a new analysis of satellite data shows that the missing Malaysia Airlines plane plunged into the southern Indian Ocean.
   
If confirmed, the news would be a major breakthrough in the unprecedented two-week struggle to find out what happened to Flight 370, which disappeared shortly after takeoff from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew aboard.

According to the BBC, the following SMS message was sent to family members of those on the flight: "Malaysia Airlines deeply regrets that we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived. As you will hear in the next hour from Malaysia's Prime Minister, we must now accept all evidence suggests the plane went down in the Southern Indian Ocean."

Razak said in the news conference, "I must inform you that according to this new data, Flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean."

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak held a news conference regarding the developments on the missing Malaysia Airlines plane Monday at 10:00.
